Addressing the House before they started the post-budget debate, the Speaker said “We can no longer allow the Executive to be running amok without any checks and balances.”
“I am sure this is sufficient notice. I have seen an indication of what is alleged to be ceiling for those arms. I am not going to take that, he added.
He opined that the Speaker is trying his best to make the base of the NDC happy because the Minority MPs have been attacked by supporters for approving some appointees of the President.
For him, the Speaker should tread cautiously and not allow any political influence to affect his work.
