Entornointeligente.com / Attorney General Marlene Malahoo Forte has renewed the call for a job description and code of conduct for members of parliament. Speaking in the Sectoral Debate in the House of Representatives on Wednesday, Mrs Malahoo Forte said there is currently little guidance on the functions of MPs. She said the provisions in the constitution need to be revised. “The only clue we really have about what the MP ought properly be involved in comes from Section 48 of the constitution, which sets out the power of parliament to make laws for peace, order and good government. The qualification and disqualification provisions at Sections 39 and 40 long need to be revised and updated, putting it mildly,” she insisted. There have long been calls for the role and functions of members of parliament to be properly defined. In the run-up to the 2016 General Election, Prime Minister Andrew Holness promised he would issue job descriptions for cabinet members. However, that commitment is yet to be fulfilled.
