ARE 2017 ELECTIONS IN THE BEST INTERESTS OF LESOTHO AND BASOTHO?
Following a Vote of No Confidence in the Government led by Prime Minister Bethuel Pakalitha Mosisili on the 1 March 2017 by the Opposition block of 74 MP's versus 34 MP of Government. would elections be in the Interests of Lesotho considering the following:
1. The SADC recommendations of the Phumaphi Commission which remain outstanding,
2. The institutional reforms that remain outstanding ( Public service Reforms, Constitutional Reforms, Security Sector Reforms)
3. There is literally no budget allocated for the financial year 2017-2018,
4. The west Minister model of Lesotho's Constitution gives the Monarch reserve powers not to agree with any Prime Minister for early elections where His Majesty is of the View that Government can continue without the need for elections or alternatively where the contemplated elections are not in the best interests of the Nation.
DOES LESOTHO NEED EARLY SNAP ELECTIONS FOR 2017 BEARING IN MIND THAT THERE WERE ELECTIONS HELD TWO YEARS AGO IN 2015?
