Will The National Assembly Ever Shut Down The Operation Of Government?


Must Read

In a genuine democratic state partisan consideration would always be set aside when it comes to promoting the public interest. The power to propose budgets is in the hands of the execute. The power to approve budgets is in the hands of the legislature. Without their cooperation there would be a shutdown of government services and the people would suffer. No genuine representative would allow such a state of affairs.
