Former Attorney-General and Minister of Justice in the Ernest Bai Koroma Administration Joseph Fitzgerald Kamara (JFK) has shed some light on the possibility of Parliament to function with the main opposition All People’s Congress (APC).

According to Kamara, Parliament would be less functioning with the main opposition.

“Parliament without the APC is a Sisyphean task for Governance.

“For instance, for a parliamentary debate as contemplated by sec. 98 of the Constitution, there has to be the other side,” Kamara said.

He said the ruling Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) would need the APC to initiate a debate in the well of Parliament.

“Government can’t debate with itself.

“Hence, without the APC, there will be no debate,” he said.

Days after results were announced by the Electoral Commission for Sierra Leone (ECSL), the hierarchy of the APC party intimated that they will boycott governance due to disagreement with the results.

The party accused the ECSL of lacking transparency while urging them to release results by polling stations across the country.

About a week ago, the APC released a dossier with signatures of their newly elected MPs, mayors and district chairperson planning to boycott governance.

With Parliament set to open on 13 July, the APC which control about 40 percent of total seats remain defiant.
