Why the devil can't the committee responsible for choosing the candidates, be composed of primarily persons unaffiliated with Government at all? Why not a group of historians and educators?
The MP who made the announcement made this weird quip with regard to having people who weren't politicians:
"We have looked at where they tried that in other jurisdictions, such as in the Caribbean, and it did not work."Please, please, elaborate.
Anyway, until we get a suitable explanation, the whole process is an even bigger farce and waste of resources than before.
She (the Government Minister) has effectively said that a panel of politicians from the ruling party is a better solution than having respected independent voices decide. A complete and disdainful farce.
