Maseru, April 17 — Members of the National Assembly have adjourned until Friday to enable members to attend the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) Post-Election Seminar starting on Tuesday.
Leader of the House Justice Nthomeng Majara moved the motion in the National Assembly on Monday, saying the short adjournment will allow the members to attend the CPA Post-Election Seminar aimed at reminding the members of their role as legislators.
She said since some of them are new members they will be equipped with their responsibilities as the legislators while those who are not new need to refresh their knowledge in order for them to deliver to the electorate.
The Leader of the House who happens to be Deputy Prime Minister was seconded by Minister of Education and Training Professor Ntoi Rapapa saying the motion will come handy to all of them as the legislators in order to acquire the necessary skills and knowledge which will allow them to perform their duties as expected.
Since the motion was procedural it was not debated and it was adopted by all the members.
This means that the National Assembly members have adjourned from Monday until Friday morning as they will be attending the CPA Post-Election Seminar.
They returned on Monday from a two week break for Easter Holidays.
