HH ASSURES PARLIAMENT OF INDEPENDENCE, SAYS MAKE LAWS FOR THE PEOPLE AND NOT AGAINST THE PEOPLE
President Hakainde Hichilema has assured the the legislative wing of government of total support from the Executive arm of government.
And the President has stated that the National Assembly under his reign and going forward must only be making Laws for the people and not against the people adding that previous ways of making Laws without listening to the people were detriment to the democratic tenets.
The Head of State said this during the approbation of the Speaker of the National Assembly of Zambia and Her two deputies at State House today.
Below is what the Head of State said :
We just concluded the Approbation of our Country’s First Female Speaker, Nelly Mutti and two Deputy Speakers.
Madam Speaker Nelly Mutti will be assisted by Attractor Chisangano, the First Deputy Speaker and Mr Moses Moyo, the Second Deputy Speaker.
The trio have a mammoth task ahead. The Executive as an arm of government guarantees the Legislature its independence in executing its duties. Our emphasis is that our country should never make laws against the people but for the people and the people must decide what becomes law through their elected representatives.
The Approbation of Madam Speaker, Madam First Deputy Speaker and Mr Second Deputy Speaker, illustrates our desired efforts in promoting women leadership in the Country.
We will be working round the clock and ensure that matters of gender equality are addressed.
Once more congratulations to Madam Speaker and her two deputies. We wish them success as they perform their duties in parliament.
May God Bless our Country.
President of the Republic of Zambia
