Critics of the new regulations also argued that there was not enough time for public comments. They alleged that only 35 days had been given for public scrutiny as opposed to 60 days stipulated by the law.
Reacting to the concerns, Ms Mesatywa said: "The minister (Rob Davies) has a prerogative to apply his mind and consider extending the commentary period, if there is a compelling need."
Normally I'd start off with "Perhaps I am wrong". But I'm not wrong, Davies has a prerogative to follow the letter of the law - which requires 60 days. The application (of his absence) of his mind is a precondition for being in his position.
Simply put this is a DTI shrug off. What they really are saying is that they will do whatever they want to do and you will tolerate it. And they don't care what the legislation or constitution says.
Why you ask. Simple - because they think we'll do nothing about it.
The are very wrong.
