Majority In Parliament Fed Up With The Antics Of The Minority In The Name Of Quorum

The Majority in Ghana’s Parliament has expressed worry over Minority’s attitude to disrupt the proceedings of Parliament in the name of quorum.

According to a reliable source, ever since the Supreme court ruled on Article 102 and 104 on the Constitution by allowing Deputy Speakers to exercise their votes even when presiding over the proceedings of Parliament, the minority has adopted a different strategy to disturb Parliamentary proceedings by raising the issue of quorum whenever the House is about to do government business.

According to the source, the sad part of the situation is that the NDC Minority would not raise the issue of quorum even when there are fewer MPs present, all because, they would want to have Ministers that has been scheduled to appear in the House and answer questions that have been filled mostly by the minority side which relates to their constituencies and soon after the Ministers’ responses, the minority would continue to disturb Parliament with the issue of quorum till Parliament adjourn the House without carrying any work that would benefit Ghanaians.

This attitude of the Minority began this week Tuesday 15 March till yesterday Thursday 17, 2022.

This diversionary tactics of the minority did not go down with the MP for Adansi Asokwa and a senior member of the majority side, lawyer K. T Hammond and told the NDC minority to do whatever they wish to do with Parliament and when they are done, they should inform the majority side of the House.
