National Alliance anticipated to put up Opposition leader

​The National Alliance party will provide a leader for the Opposition side of 2017 National government;

As per law the party with the highest number in any sides of the government will automatically lead each side.

Hence given the surge in numbers for NA, the opposition leader may well be the leader of National Alliance.

Former deputy opposition leader and Pangu Pati leader Sam Basil, was queried about the absence of an opposition leader for both parliament seatings, the recent one being on the 22nd of August.

Basil said there are few matters to be taken care of before this can be addressed however, it is a case of the rule of law; thus the party with the highest number in this coalition will have to take up the post.

The leader in addition stated that there will be a thorough look into all matters concerning the opposition; one of which is the submission to the clerk’s office.

He added that this will be looked into – and the submission should be handed in – no later than the end of next month.
