Lawmakers discuss constituency constraints


By Kaddy Jawo

Lawmakers have finally wrapped up the second ordinary session of the National Assembly 2018 legislative year on Tuesday. The session came to an end after National Assembly Members discussed some of the constraints facing their various constituencies and the general issues affecting the socio-economic development of the country and the way forward.

The Speaker of the House, Mariam Jack-Denton, said the legislature has a lot to be proud of and urged them to continue doing the tremendous work they are doing.
“I would have said it’s not possible and yet we did thoroughly and in depth and in great ways that profoundly impacted the state for years to come. And It has been one of the greatest professions of my life to serve in the legislature,” Speaker Denton remarked.
The electorate needs to be well represented because during parliament proceedings the language being used is not understood by the people who voted us here and something needs to be done about that, Sedia Jatta said.


Also speaking, the majority leader, said he’s impressed with the final outcome of compliance from the various ministries that participated fully during the National Assembly questions and answers session.
The lawmakers said they had to reevaluate spending priorities from the various ministries across and promised to leave no stone unturned when the National Assembly resumes next session.
