Despite promises of constitutional reform to (hopefully) further develop our democratic structures, the PLPN cabal tinker here and there with the constitution to serve solely their own interests.
As we’ve seen in the Commissioner of Standards farce, they play the tit-for-tat game and don’t explain their choices other than through some petty rhetoric.
