In every of their step the public will be watching to see which side the MPs will take.
The MPs have only up to the weekend to enact the pending Bills, which include those on national security and war against terrorism, which they have to go through with a fine toothcomb to ensure the changes proposed do not assault the country’s range of freedoms ensconced in the current Constitution under its robust Bill of Rights.
