To address the poor quality of debate in the House, the Omoro County Member of Parliament revealed that he proposed that parties submit names of Members of Parliament who would be selected to speak to the Speaker beforehand, an idea that was rejected by Parliament's Business Committee.

The Business Committee determines the order of business in the House.
"You look at the quality of debate, look at the level of research. Someone just comes into the chambers and starts debating. I used to read the Hansard but I have stopped reading it.

We miss the big picture because in our debates, we are so political because politics is the only thing that does not require research," Mr Oulanyah said. "I have been ridiculed and criticised even by the Business Committee, that I am suppressing debate. We [MPs] have a different kind of expertise which we are not using well," he said.

Last year, a Daily Monitor study of the first and second sessions of the current 9th Parliament revealed that 34 legislators have spoken less than five times on the floor of the House in the last two years while another 105 have contributed less than 15 times to debates.

A similar study indicated that 34 women Members of Parliament contributed to debate less than 15 times in the first two session of the 9th Parliament.
