National Assembly

 

Here is the current composition of parliament.
PF 80
UPND 56
Independent 14
Nominated (PF) 8
MMD 3
FDD 1
NDC 1
Vice President 1
Speaker 1
1st deputy speaker 1
Vacant 1 (deceased)

Total 167

To pass to 2nd reading bill 10 will need 2/3 or 67% of the 167 which is 111.

If yesterday’s vote (simple vote to reinstate on order paper) was indicative of the support that Bill 10 has, then it’s short 14 votes ie 111-97.

But our projection is that Bill 10 could get not more 104 to 106 votes.
This leaves it short 5 to 7 votes.
