Stand­ing or­ders need to be amended

Observer on Saturday - - News -

Speaker Themba Msibi has stated that Par­lia­ment Stand­ing Or­ders need to be amended to be in line with what is ob­tain­ing in the re­gion.

He said cur­rently, any­one in­ter­prets the Stand­ing Or­ders to suit his or her agenda.

“In or­der for Par­lia­ment to work well, we need to have at least a com­mon un­der­stand­ing of the Stand­ing Or­ders as they guide us on how we should carry out our work. There have been cases in the past where we ap­peared to be at vari­ance in our un­der­stand­ing and such cre­ated un­nec­es­sary ten­sions,” he said.

Msibi said given an op­por­tu­nity, all the is­sues he has ex­pe­ri­enced can be worked on and Par­lia­ment can re­claim its re­spect.
