QUESTION OF THE DAY

The Executive only has the capacity to propose bills and not the capacity to turn them into Laws. Only the National Assembly has the powers to pass Bills and ensure that they are transformed into enforceable enactments. Cabinet should recognize this and not to propose any bill whose enactment would produce a Law that is unreasonable and unjustifiable in a democratic society. Such a bill would be passed in a National Assembly which is committed not to pass any Bill that proposes provisions that would be regarded as unreasonable and unjustifiable in a democratic society.

In the area of Law making, the Executive may propose, but it is the National Assembly which disposes for Laws to come into being. Even if powers to make regulation and other subsidiary legislation are to be exercised by the Executive, it must act on the basis of a parent legislation passed by the National Assembly. The National Assembly is the Law making body of the land. All voters should monitor Member votes on Bills brought to the National Assembly.
