Written by admin on September 18, 2020
The Leader of Opposition, Dumelang Saleshando yesterday spoke out against the Speaker and the Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly, saying that the current regime of the speakership and the ruling BDP has displayed arrogance towards the opposition in parliament.
Speaking in parliament yesterday, Saleshando accused the speakers of abusing their powers, and said that the speakership of the current parliament is a joke.
This was following a move by the Leader of the House, Vice President Slumber Tsogwane to table a motion which was seeking to extend session of parliament by a further 2 hours.
Saleshando was of the view that procedures were not being followed and cited several other incidents where he felt that the opposition was bulldozed by the BDP and the speakers.
