It was a colourful affair as the second batch of Members of the 11th Parliament took their oaths on Tuesday. These brought the total of the already sworn in MPs to 265 MPs after another 134 were sworn in on Monday.

The Constitution provides that Members of Parliament elect to take and subscribe to the Oath of Allegiance and Oath of Members of Parliament. It further provides that except for purposes of taking the oaths, no person shall sit or vote in Parliament before taking and subscribing to the oaths.

The Oaths Act mandates the Clerk to Parliament to administer oaths before MPs elect a Speaker.
