An exceedingly interesting composition of Parliament’s Appointments Committee (a rather beautiful 13-13).
Remember Standing Order 172 (8) stipulates that a candidate who fails to secure 50% of the votes cast is rejected. Order 172 (4) makes that voting process a secret ballot.
Instructive to note that Order 211 (5) forbids the Chairman from having an original vote.
May the supreme national interest, respect for our laws and good conscience guide us all.
Wishing all prospective ministerial nominees the best of luck.
