COULD NATIONAL ASSEMBLY COMMITTEES IMPLEMENT THEIR RECOMMENDATIONS WITHOUT DISCUSSION AND APPROVAL BY THE ASSEMBLY?

19

Committees of the National Assembly are designed to scrutinise, gather evidence and give advice in the form of recommendations and resolutions to the whole National Assembly for decision. Hence individual members of the National Assembly cannot commit the National Assembly on any matter.

The expectations of the public should therefore be properly measured to equate the powers entrusted to the individual members of the National Assembly and their committees. When committees review budgets of the institutions, the ministers responsible for those institutions still have the authority to appeal to all National Assembly members to review the proposals of committees. Section 77 provides for healthy interaction between the ministers and the National Assembly members in dealing with any matter affecting ministries.
