    Can this committee override president's selection?

    No. It is a rubber stamp committee.

    What a joke! 14 cronies and only 4 opposition members. Do the opposition parties have a say?

    Bandu Tuesday, 08 September 2020 06:28 PM

    Every voting guaranteed 14 for govt. to 4. Waste of our time and money.

    Start with the criminal who got elected to the parliament. Having crooks to catch the crooks.
