Alan Bagbin declares No Party Majority in Parliament

On the 7th of January the 7th Parliament of the 4th Republic of Ghana was transitioned to 8th and newly elected Members of Parliament were inaugurated.

The New patriotic Party and National Democratic Congress doesn’t seem to come to an agreement as to who sits at the right side of the speaker which slated for the Majority in Parliament since both parties have 137 members each.

The Independent candidate in Parliament which is the MP for Fomena constituency has declared his stand of doing business with the Npp caucus in Parliament and this got the Npp Saying they are Majority.

on the 15th of January which was the first sitting if Parliament after their inauguration, the Members of the Npp got to Parliament hours earlier to occupy the majority sits and this got people from the public confirming that Npp is Majority.

But the Newly elected speaker of Parliament from the opposition party, Alan Albin Bagbin has stated empathically that no party is majority even tho the Fomena MP has declared his stand of associating with the NPP caucus in Parliament.

He said Time will Tell and that the good people of Ghana have not decided on some of them even tho they have been inaugurated. In Ghana, it’s only on numbers whether you sit at the left or right in Parliament, it’s of no consequence so far as the Parliament of Ghana is concern. We are not running a parliamentary system of Governance. There are no additional benefits on sitting at the majority or minority. And he is taking time to explain because it is of a lot of public interest.
