DP NEC Debates Shadow Cabinet
DP's National Executive Committee heard presentations from DP MPs who want to be included in FDC's shadow cabinet. This follows a series of contradictory messages from the Parliamentary group who have been lobbying hard to be included in FDC's Official Parliamentary grouping. In the 9th Parliament, the Official Opposition controls 4 Parliamentary Committees out of 18. More than ten weeks after Parliament's inauguration, the official opposition has failed to name a Shadow Cabinet and operationalize its whip. DP was the first parliamentary party to name its Shadow Cabinet followed by NRMO and UPC.
