Dear Editor, I intended not to contribute again to this debate, however some of Sasako's comment in his last posting erroneous.
Sasako's assertion that section 51 of the Constitution is selectively applied to the mps that have been affected by the section is incorrect and erroneous. In fact it was the mps (Dau and Peter Shannel) that failed on their part to comply with the requirements of the constitution. I believe the Speaker would not have disallowed any application for extension by these two mps have they comply with the requirements. Rumours from reliable sources in Parliament had it that Dausabea failed to submit an application for an extension within the 30 days as required under law and the same applied to Shannel.
