THE structure of parliament should be smaller than the present one.
Naqara resident and businessman David Reynolds said each parliament term should be five years.
"If shorter, the government would be hardly established in its policies before it was time for a new election," said Mr Reynolds.
He also suggested the establishment of an upper chamber that was apolitical but also elected to verify, agree and vet actions of the lower chamber.
Mr Reynolds suggested that the leader of the upper chamber should be elected along with the vice-chair.
"The positions could be confined to senior and respected members of society, such as judges, retired politicians, business leaders, civil servants, non-political religious leaders and some could step up in an honorary capacity," he said.
Mr Reynolds said: "I do not agree with compulsory inclusion of women in parliament but they should be actively encouraged to take part.
"In any parliament it should be the best person for the job and many of these are women anyway."
"Any other rules like a 60/40 men/women or other figures would be too restrictive on getting the best person for the job," he said.
Mr Reynolds labelled the Great Council of Chiefs and the three confederacies as an outdated unnecessary 'colonial dinosaur'.
