Mr Speaker, I am inclined to support the initial amendment of Hon Boafo. I think we need to distinguish between micro-management of an institution and policy. Policy, in my opinion, is a statement of intent to fulfil an objective or a set of objectives. Let me emphasize it once again on that statement.
It is a statement of intent. It is not a directive to do a specific thing in a specific institution. No. So, if we agree on that definition, then I do not see why people are saying a Minister can give a directive to purchase a vehicle. On the other hand, if Parliament passes a Bill and later on there is something which a Minister or somebody does against the Bill, it is not the authority or it does not lie within the purview of Parliament to ask for that thing to come back. We should be aware of separation of powers.
We have the Judiciary; we have the Executive and it is the Executive that micro- manages this economy by the initial stages putting forward a set of policies. So, in my opinion, if there is something going wrong with a Bill that has been passed, it is left to any one of us or anybody in the country to send the Bill to court. It is not left to us to interpret the Bill but rather it is left to the Judiciary to do the interruption.
So the idea that everything should come back to Parliament is neither here nor there. If there is anything wrong with a specific Bill, the way it is being implemented, then it is left to any individual to go to court for interpretation. So, I will support the amendment, that yes, a policy is a policy, it is not micro-
management of an institution or an organization. And if a policy directive is given to any organization, that should be complied with because it is a policy, it is government's -- [Interruption.] Yes, I support the amendment.
