NDC's vetting threats don't scare me
The constitution of the appointment committee of parliament currently stands at 13-13 meaning equal representation from both sides of parliament, giving the minority group an equal say in the approvals. Speaking to the media, Mr Jinapor noted that the constitution has spelled out qualifications of a minister of state and that is what should guide the Appointments committee of which he is a member himself. "The president nominates and parliament gives prior approval. The framers of our constitution could have well said the president nominates and that's it or they could have said that parliament would be responsible for the nomination and that will be it. I think that that constitutional architecture is one that I welcome very much in accord with separation of powers, checks, and balances, it's very perfect, I'm more than happy with it. Ministers are to be vetted, so will it be."
