QUESTION OF THE DAY

HOW MANY NATIONAL ASSEMBLY MEMBERS VOTED FOR A STATE OF EMERGENCY?

According to the Constitution two thirds of the National Assembly members must vote yes before a state of emergency could be extended. This requires a roll call until 36 members give their support.

Secondly, the National Assembly is not allowed to pass any bill that deprives a person of an acquired right.

Hence, Foroyaa will conduct its interviews to find out who voted in support of a state of emergency and whether there was a roll call to confirm the two thirds majority.
