A member of the House of Representatives, Mr Abiodun Olasupo, on Monday, said that there was no ambiguity in the rules of the National Assembly in electing its leadership.
NAN recalls that the Special Adviser to the President on National Assembly Matters, Sen. Ita Enang, had advocated for the adoption of the 2011 House Rule in electing the 9th Assembly leadership.
Olasupo, who is representing Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Iwajowa and Kajola Federal Constituency, said ”the constitution empowers the National Assembly to regulate its own affairs and set its own rules.
”What is existing now in our rules is an open secret ballot system; the Clerks of Senate or House of Reps would do a roll call, preside over the election of the presiding officers and swear them in.
According to him, he had noticed moves by some politicians to change the rules in their favour.
