A total of 193 votes by the members of the House of Representatives has knocked out the quest to give constitutional life pension to the President of the Senate, Speaker of the House of Representatives and their respective Deputies.

The bill failed to get the required 240 votes as provided in the 1999 constitution as amended.

The bill got 193 ‘No’ votes, while 162 lawmakers voted in support of the bill.

There was wild jubilation from members of the House when the result came up on the screen.
