Opposition to table Private Bill in Second Ordinary session

The office of the Opposition is lodging a bill to repeal the Customary Land management Act, says Leader of Opposition, Ishmael Kalsakau.

In an interview with the Buzz 96 Fm,MP Kalsakau said the private members bill was lodged because the Customary Land Management Act has not function since it was passed in the Parliament.

“This has been depriving the government of much revenue to provide much needed services to the people,” he said.

In regards to the next ordinary session, Mr Kalsakau also said that according to the Constitution, it requires the Parliament to meet in an ordinary session twice a year.

“According to the Standing Order, the first session should be around in the middle of March and the second commencing mid-August,” he said.

“In light of this the government is way over time. We have not heard anything from the Clerk,the government is working on some bills to be discussed but we have not received anything.”
