Assemblymen reject proposed ethics bill

Date Posted: 2006-10-19

Nakagusuku Village Assemblymen have turned thumbs-down a proposal that would require resignations in the wake of law violations.

The Assembly voted 9-6 to reject a bill that called for “Assembly members to resign instantly” after being charged will unlawful activities such as drunk driving. “We know drunken driver are bad, and we put blame on them, but because of that the Asembly members’ rights and position shouldn’t be taken away,” they said. Another said “we don’t agree to new rules calling for immediate resignation. It’s the truth in law that no one can take away the human rights of assembly members.

Reaction from those supporting the ethics measure said “members are doing a job of telling their opinions instead of the things we should do for village people. If the member breaks the rules, it requires strong responsibility that includes resigning.” Another added “Assembly members must demonstrate leadership, and if a person in a leadership position breaks the rules of the village, that person surely must resign.”
