Is it really needed?

Dear Editor,

I am grateful that at least the two honorable MP's Mr Abana and Mr Gukuna have rejected the bill for an increase in parliamentary seats. And Mr Tawea has discussed it generously. My worries are, apart from from the fact that amendments have been previously made to the bill, is it so hard to recommend a DECREASE in seats on adhoc basis in lieu of the global financial hardships? Is it compulsory that there has to be an increase in seats everytime? Can we make some sense out of nonsense??. Is it worth passing the buck onto the next government? Can the line be drawn somewhere? Can someone explain? I remain concerned as usual.
