And the Executive Committee of the NRM Parliamentary caucus is elected by the caucus members. These work hand in hand with the Government Chief whip who is appointment by the Executive (President). In this case, the NRM Chief whip also is mandated to designate members to serve on committees. This is also in accordance with the rules procedure of parliament where standing committee tenure lasts for only two and half years. These are set up at the start of a new term of Parliament and again after two and half years.
