QUESTION OF THE DAY

Section 77 Subsection 2 does indicate that ‘’The National Assembly may request the President to attend a sitting of the National Assembly for the discussion of a matter of national importance. “

However, under the current constitution the President cannot be dragged to come to the Assembly. The reason is simple.

Section 77 Subsection 3 has indicated who should appear before the Assembly on behalf of the President. It reads :

“(3) The Vice-President shall answer in the National Assembly for matters affecting the President, and the President shall be entitled to send a message to the National Assembly to be read on his or her behalf by the Vice-President.’’
