        Section 7.12. Ensure Commissions are not populated by Establishment 'heid nodders'. Achieved by formally establishing Constituency Associations on call to convene as and when needed to better connect the electorate to their MP. A constitutional forum where controversial policies or proposed legislation can be debated at the grass roots; replacing a second chamber but also where local experts for Select Commissions are invited and nominated.
