Kwesi Pratt: I totally disagree with Hon. Inusah Fuseini and not comfortable with the speaker ruling

It looks like Mr. Kwesi Pratt Jnr, managing editor of the insight newspaper, and some other Ghanaians has been expressing their worry on the conduct of some NDC members of parliament who voted in favour of the three rejected nominees put forward by the President.

They felt some of those nominees who were later approved by parliament were not competent enough to handle the portfolios that they have been given as ministers. Some, Mr. Pratt said, had no idea of the structure of their sector.

On a morning show on Pan African TV on 4th March, Mr. Pratt, totally disagreed with Alhaji Inusah Fuseini, former MP for Tamale central constituency, on his submissions that the NDC through these difficult moment would come out strongly. Mr. Pratt also reminded the former MP that the NPP is not the majority in parliament but rather forms a majority group in parliament as stated by the speaker of parliament. According to him, the independent candidate in suppose to be independent and not always be seen with the NPP as majority.

He further stated that the constitution makes it clear that where the independent candidature is compromised and for instance, an independent candidate is always seen associating with one party, the independent seat can be question and a by-election conducted as required. Mr. Pratt stated that he was not comfortable with the ruling of the speaker of parliament, Hon. Alban Bagbin, on allowing the independent candidate to always be seen siding with the NPP and referring to them as majority. He also thought some NDC members in parliament were taking their people for granted.
