Independent Senator Anthony Vieira has filed a private motion on the reform of the service commissions and the subject will be debated in the Senate later today.
Vieira’s motion calls on the Government to review the Constitution and the enshrined service commissions, and table in Parliament a clear plan to update the Constitution and reform the commissions.
The commissions covered are the Public Service Commission, Police Service Commission, Teaching Service Commission and the Judicial and Legal Service Commission.
Vieira’s motion also calls on Government to do this within a reasonable time frame.
The Senate Order Paper for Tuesday’s sitting also shows the Opposition has posed eight questions to the Government for oral answer.
The Senate will sit from 1.30 pm at the Red House.
