NO NEGOTIATION ON STATE OF EMERGENCY


For Immediate Release

5th August, 2015


The Office of the Clerk of Parliament hereby wishes to dispel rumours and to counter statements circulating the social media about a negotiation meeting in Parliament on Tuesday 4th August in advance of a motion for a six months extension of the State of Emergency.

 

We hasten to state that there was no such meeting and therefore no decision taken about the current State of Emergency.

 

Members of the public are assured that statutory deliberations and debates on the State of Emergency are intended to serve the best interests of the nation and as with any other matter, will be readily published as they occur.
