Blog: Reminder

If there was any need for a reminder as to the responsibility and duty of the government to set the agenda of Parliament and regulate its affairs, the Prime Minister brilliantly did it during his intervention on the Criminal Appeal (Amendment) Bill recently passed by Parliament. He in no certain terms said that if the opposition has its full freedom to express its views and the government to listen to them, it is only and only government’s prerogative to decide or not to decide to accept or not to accept any suggestion of the opposition. This applies also to opinion expressed in the media.
