No Date Set to Reconvene Debate on Amendments to House of Assembly Election Act
Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit says no date has been set for Parliament to reconvene to debate the amendment to the House of Assembly Election act.
The amendment to the House of Assembly election act was taken to Parliament for debate in May, but protest by the opposition forced Government to suspend the sitting.
The opposition said the amendments would encourage bribery and treating, a claim Government rejected.
PM Skerrit says the situation has prevented the Electoral Commission from moving ahead with electoral reform.
Meantime, the Electoral Commission holds a town meeting at the Portsmouth Credit Union Hall this evening at 6pm.
The town hall meeting will discuss plans for a national ID card for the purposes of voting.
