Speaker of Parliament, Dr. Jiko Luveni, made a ruling on a point of order that was raised by National Federation Party, Leader Professor Biman Prasad yesterday.
Dr. Luveni reminded all MPs that points of order made, only applies to the rules and practices of the house.
She says it’s not done on content of any speech or comment but can be raised during any time of a parliament sitting.
“It’s not a presentation of a prepared paper. And therefore the point of order that was raised did not qualify under the point of order process.”
Professor Prasad was instructed by Dr. Luveni to stop mid-way from raising his point of order regarding the adoption of the Standing Orders which was presented on Monday.
The NPF Leader then walked out of parliament and later clarified his point of order in a written letter to the Speaker of the House.
