Is the use of the Courts to determine the work of PEC (particularly in awarding of excessive benefits to MPs and their Spouse) a means to legitimate these outrageous benefits. The whole issue is not about the legality of the awarding of the benefits to MPs but rather the huge amount awarded to few when the country is in dire need of finance to support its essential services and the poor civil servants struggling to make ends meet. It is the question of Morality Vs Legality. So the ideal approach for the PM and colleague to take is simply to strike of such benefit. Unless it is beyond the powers of PM and Parliament to strike such benefit, what happens when the court rules in favour of PEC. We are not blind to see where this is leading to.
