COGNISANT that such tolerance of all views by Government is not a sign of weakness but the pillar and cornerstone of goodwill as envisaged by our peace loving people all over the country;

 

NOTING with disdain the deplorable and potentially explosive political gimmicks by forces of negation who always vilify the Government and have the audacity in their stunts to advocate for the perpetuation and perpetration of very illegal and retrogressive sanctions on their own motherland by foreign Governments;

 

CONCERNED that each time the country gears for Elections such political malcontents rear their ugly heads and start speaking with forked tongues wherein they advocate for sanctions on one hand and still want to participate in fair and free elections on the other hand without any repercussions for their unpatriotic and destructive utterances and calls for the tightening of sanctions;

 

NOW, THEREFORE, calls upon this House:

 

  1. To condemn in the strongest of terms such people who have nothing to contribute to our nation other than to call for these unwarranted sanctions on our country.

 

  1. The banning of holding of Government Office Positions by those who continue to advocate for sanctions against the county and yet still continue to enjoy benefits from such responsibilities.

 

 

  1. The banning of the swearing into office of anyone advocating for sanctions against the country.
