SENATE MAKES RESOLUTION TO DECLARE SOME PROCEEDINGS ON OMNIBUS BILL NULL, VOID 

Maseru, Aug. 15 — The House of the Senate has made a resolution to declare some of the proceedings on the 11th Amendment to the Constitution null and void. 

According to the Notice of the urgent Motion issued by the Leader of the House, this is due to irregularities which were obtained during its enactment on July 13, 2022. 

The Committee of the Whole House Report and Third readings stages were flawed to the extent that the amendments suggested by the committee of the Whole House were not dispatched to the National Assembly as a single message provided by the Standing Order No. 61(5), but they were sent in batches. 

The Motion further indicates that the net effect of above was that the Senate and the National Assembly were simultaneously examining that Bill, and as a result the democratic principles of checks and balances was compromised. . .
