President Hifikepunye Pohamba officially opened the seventh session of the fifth parliament today in Windhoek.
“Parliament should ensure people’s participation in democracy in democratic governance by facilitating the full articulation of their aspirations, value and choices in the development process. Similarly, it is vital that our parliament should not stand isolation from the voters whom it represents. Rather, it should forge closer ties with the voters so that they can make inputs into the law making process”, said Pohamba.
Themed “Connecting Parliament with the Public: Ensuring Accountability and Public Discloser”, the Namibian parliament is expected to table the following bills; Agricultural Enhancement Agents Bill, Audit Bill, Child Care and protection Bill, Communal Land Reform Amendment Bill, Gaming and Entertainment Control Bill, Marriage Bill, Public Procurement Bill and Urban and Regional Planning Bill.
