Blog: Courageous move

Kudos to Shakeel Mohammed, Minister of Labour and Industrial Relations. In spite of fierce opposition from trade unions and employers, he went ahead to present the Employment Relations (amendment) Bill 2013 and the Employment Rights (amendment) Bill 2013 in parliament on Tuesday. After moving the bill to be read a second time, the only concession he made was to accept that the debates be adjourned to next Tuesday to allow the opposition more time to participate fully in the pure tradition of parliamentary democracy.
