    Some media reported there was a conspiracy involving certain corrupt elements in the judiciary to prolong her case and keep her as an MP. However it seems a similar issue in Australia where their courts acted swiftly

    what about our rights who voted for her. we could have voted for somebody else. all those votes null and void .i think election commissioner is responsible for giving her green light to contest and thereby making our voting rights of no value.

    Yeti Thursday, 02 November 2017 11:40 AM

    Oh, you could've only you were misled into believing that she just crossed over from the silver screen!!!

    Domiya Thursday, 02 November 2017 11:50 AM

    She kept telling in national televisions that she was not a dual citizen; shame, shame; lies so easily.

    Kadiya Thursday, 02 November 2017 11:37 AM

    How about another blockade of the Parliament road?

    willowsd Thursday, 02 November 2017 11:38 AM

    Now it is clear dual citizenship is a disqualification to be a MP or Minister or Premier/HE? what about those who promoting similar status persons? can the EC give a ruling now and clear the smoke around?

    lkboy Thursday, 02 November 2017 11:40 AM

    No faith in the next in the line too.

    Somapala Thursday, 02 November 2017 11:44 AM

    Bigger question, can a foreign citizen (not a dual citizen) hold the responsible post of Central bank governor?

    Somawathie Thursday, 02 November 2017 02:55 PM

    There is a Difference - one elected aand the other appointed.

    Mason Thursday, 02 November 2017 05:52 PM

    No dual citizenship holder should be permitted to hold public positions, either elected or appointed.

    Stan Thursday, 02 November 2017 02:38 PM

    But she did renounce her Swiss Citizenship.

    ravin Thursday, 02 November 2017 02:40 PM

    This law must be applied to all higher posts in public sector.

    RM Thursday, 02 November 2017 05:15 PM

    If you need a Foreign Expert in some field there is no bar in employing them but a foreigner cannot be an elected peoples representative.

    Dhammika Thursday, 02 November 2017 05:41 PM
