NCC Updates (Vice Presidents, Ministers, Chiefs)

Vice Presidents : The Executive Commitee resolved to reject the draft constitution proposal of running mates. The agreed resolution keeps the status quo of the president appointing the vice president. An additional idea for the appointment to be ratified through parliament was rejected.

Appointment of Ministers : Another resolution from the Executive Committee to reject a proposal from the draft constitution that allows the Republican President to appoint ministers outside Parliament.And the legislative committee of the NCC has adopted a clause for the formation of a Parliamentary Service Commission.

Chiefs and Politics : They have also reached a somewhat confused position on chiefs. Chiefs should not be allowed to participate in competitive elections but can be nominated to become members become members of parliament citing the need for chiefs to be allowed to debate issues affecting them.
