The House of Representatives introduced no fewer than 1,473 bills within the last three years.
Spokesperson of the House, Mr. Abdulrazak Namdas, who disclosed this to reporters yesterday ahead of the third anniversary of the Eighth Assembly, said 90 of the bills were contained in the recently-concluded fourth alteration of the Constitution Amendment Act.
He disclosed that 519 of the bills were awaiting first reading, 284 referred to various committees of the House and 192 additional bills were being considered by the committees of the House.
Namdas further stated that the House successfully passed 222 of the bills just as it withdrew 23 of the bills and killed 22 other irrelevant bills during the period under review.
He described the contribution of the House towards taking the country out of recession as well as the passage of the “Not Too Young to Run Bill” as some of the laudable achievements of the House within the period under review.
