We are not voting on the bill, but on the amendment to the bill. Therefore, LROF's vote is invalidated for inapplicability. I hereby ask the member to vote again in a relevant manner.

My Right Honourable and Honourable friends, this House has surely noticed my inactivity in this debate, but it was not because I wished to be inactive; some things required precedence over the debate which ultimately led to this Bill and Amendment.

There are some things that concern me, like the political office of the Minister of Jurisprudence and its powers and influence in all that is proposed in the Amendment. (Of course, it would surprise anyone if the current Right Honourable Minister of Jurisprudence abuses his powers or influence in any way, but that cannot be guaranteed with regards to Ministers who might be appointed in the very distant future.)

Therefore, I cannot vote in favour of the Amendment as it is now proposed, and I wish to vote against it.

The promise and duty to accept and execute the Law will of course stand, so if this Bill (with Amendment or not) is passed by Parliament, I will in all circumstances abide by it.

Thank you Nassau, your remarks are noted.

The vote is closed as a majority has been reached in favor, and the amendment adopted.
