The Wa MP made this disclosure as a panelist on 'Good Morning Africa' on Pan Africa TV today when he responded to comments that Parliament is responsible for the problems of this country.
"People need to understand how Parliament works. Parliament does not initiate laws. Many people don't know that. When something happens, they will be saying that Parliament should have some this and that. We don't initiate laws. That is according to the constitution of our republic."
According to him, they don't do policies. They make laws presented to them as bills by the Executives so that they can carry out their policies.
He stated that the Executives have their economic goals. They want to build hospitals and construct roads, but they can't do them without a legal base, and they can't make the laws at cabinet so, they have to bring it to Parliament for them to make the laws.
"So, when the laws are made, we contribute our quota by making the law, but we don't know what they are going to do with it. In effect, the country is ruled by the executive."
He added that parliamentarians are supposed to bring out some of the ills in the government, just like they've done on the minister of health. They can share part of the blame, but they cannot bear the full responsibility.
