RECOGNISING that Members of Parliament, with the exception of Independent candidates, are elected to Parliament on a political party ticket

 

ACKNOWLEDGING that every political party is guided by its own ideology, values and principles which largely influence the manner in which members of the party debate on issues brought before Parliament
