  • Issue
    • May a delegate to the National Assembly hold a government post concurrently?
  • Holding
    •        The Constitutional National Assembly did not adopt the proposition that a delegate to the National Assembly shall not hold a government post, nor did it adopt the proposition that an incumbent government official shall not be elected as a delegate to the National Assembly. Article 28, Paragraph 3, of the Constitution merely prohibits an incumbent government official from being elected to the National Assembly in the electoral area where he or she holds office. Suffice it to say that at the time the Constitution was created, the framers had no intention to prevent delegates to the National Assembly from occupying government positions. Therefore, a delegate to the National Assembly is not prohibited from holding a government post concurrently.
