Meanwhile, the Director of Public Affairs of Parliament
, Jones Kugblenu
has appealed to the media and the public to be circumspect in their criticism and condemnation of MPs and the institution of Parliament.He
said such acts send wrong signals to adventurers who might misinterpret these criticisms as a weakness in the democratic process and the institution of Parliament
which is the bastion of democracy in order to interrupt it.Mr. Kugblenu told this reporter that the Finance and Economic Planning Minister is a credible member of the House on whose word both members of the Finance Committee and the House as a whole, relied for the approval of the loan agreement.
To him therefore, if there are doubts about the information provided, it is important that we wait for the Minister who himself has promised to come back and provide the facts as he
knows them.Mr. Kugblenu
is not convinced that the institution of Parliament
can be solely blamed for the approval of the controversial loan.
