Even in parliament, divided we fall

AT first glance, it seems our country is now back on track, with a civilian president to speed up our forward movement. However, the country’s political representation faces more complexities than expected, both theoretically and in practice, given the rise of challenges in parliament with each new day.
These differences have something more to do with elected and non-elected lawmakers than the constitution or the institutions themselves. Both elected and non-elected lawmakers have a responsibility to make things better for the people and the country as a whole during their tenure. It is understandable that failure is hard to accept. However, wasting lamenting one’s failure will doom anyone to a hopeless future. There is no such thing as instant success.
Just a few days into the parliament, the tempo of disagreement rose to a new level, instilling a feeling among the public that the country is still in a difficult state of transition. In the past five years, few people would watch parliamentary news on TV. Since the new government took office, more and more people are viewing live parliamentary broadcasts out of curiosity about what the new government will do for them.
It is, therefore, necessary for all representatives to display positive attitudes toward each other. In addition, they need to renew their dedication and determination in order to normalise relations with each other and serve national interests. Now is the time for all of us to pay complete attention to the adage “United we stand, divided we fall” with the knowledge in mind that there are always differences of opinion in the realm of politics.
