Parliament to vote by using the roll call system

Clauses 164 and 165 states that roll call votes can only be taken if and when the electronic voting system has an error and MPs raise objections over it.  Otherwise vote must be taken using the electronic voting system.

In spite of these Clauses, the Parliament Deputy Speaker has passed to take the vote by using the roll call method. 45 MPs had voted in favor of using this method, while the rest had risen up in protest.

Do not believe what the Speaker says: Ali Hussain

From today's proceedings we can see that the Parliament is not proceeding according to rules. MP Moosa filling as Speaker is not exempt. Parliament is supposed to champion the rights of citizens. We cannot question the Ministers, make the Govenrment accountable. All this happens in the Parliament. I do not believe what the Speaker says. Whatever he's saying is to maintain his position. Today, the public must be allowed to witness the proceedings. They cannot be sent off like that.
