OrderPaperToday– Motions form an integral part of the legislative process. Not only do they represent the policy direction of a legislator, but they are also ideas for deliberation in order to ensure particular action is taken for the growth of certain areas.

As a result, lawmakers whose names are absent on the Motions Chart can be accused of failing to fulfill their responsibilities as lawmakers.
