Christopher de Souza on Constitution of the Republic of Singapore (Amendment) Bill

(Updated: )

MP Christopher de Souza asked for clarification on invoking special arrangements for Parliament sittings to be conducted from more than one location after the Constitution of the Republic of Singapore (Amendment) Bill is passed. Speaking in Parliament on Tuesday (May 5), he wanted to know why the resolution could be passed with a simple and not two-thirds majority, and how “inexpedient” circumstances for meeting in a single caucus might be defined. Mr de Souza noted that the provisions of the Bill should be invoked sparingly and only when necessary.
