The 9th Parliament will probably have its first meeting as early as next week. Sources close to the Prime Ministers Office revealed to PREJUDICE that Prime Minister Danny Philip is looking at the 8th of September 2010 as the likely date to hold Parliament first meeting.

PREJUDICE understands that the Prime Minister after appointing his Cabinet Ministers will be calling for a meeting soon. Now that all 23 Ministerial portfolios has been filled a meeting is anticipated soon.

Parliament needs to meet so that duly elected Members of Parliament took their oath. PREJUDICE understands that no Member of Parliament is permitted to take part in any Parliamentary proceedings until he/she made the oath or affirmation of allegiance.

It is understood that in accordance with section 72 of the constitution, the Governor General acting on the advice of the Prime Minister may appoint on proclamation published in the gazette a date for parliament to commence its first session.
