Hon Andrew Dari Chiwetey
March 22, 2022

Member of Parliament for Sawla-Tuna-Kalba Andrew Dari Chiwetey has dismissed assertion that the Minority side of the House is deliberately frustrating government business on the floor of the House by citing issues of quorum the whole of last week.

“Where are the Majority MPs for us to take a decision on the floor of the House? It’s clear that they do not come to the chamber; you can see that the members present in the chamber, we would go strictly the constitution ones we need 138 members to take a major decision”.

In an interview, the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba lawmaker insisted that it cannot be said that the  Minority is frustrating government business, no; “ we are always present to work if you go into the chamber now and count the members present in the chamber those on our side are far more than their side”.

As to whether their crusade would force the Majority MPs to come to the House to help take decision, he said “we think they should be there to do business, we are not forcing them but we think they should be there to do business. If it happens we have to take a major decision and we do not have the numbers we do not care”.

“We would insist we have the 138 and we must go by the constitution Article 102 and 104 must work that is all”.
