I Will Never Sit And Watch Gov't To Frustrate Parliament In It's Lawful Duty - Speaker Declares

The speaker of parliament, Alban Sumani Bagbin has said that he will do everything in his power as the speaker to resist the government's attempt to obstruct or frustrate parliament in its lawful duties.

His declaration comes after the brouhaha surrounding the rejection of the 2022 budget presented to parliament by the finance minister.

Taking to his official Facebook page, Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin said that is the pledge to the people of Ghana, to always stand and make sure the right things are done at the appropriate ways. He said that is the main reason the parliament was elected.

He reiterated that this parliament is a hung parliament of 137-137. But it's unfortunate that the independent had decided to do business with the side of the majority, but there is no majority in parliament.

"As the Speaker, I will do all I can, not to allow the government to obstruct or frustrate parliament in its lawful duty. That is a pledge to the people of Ghana, and there is a reason why the good people of Ghana elected this parliament. It is a hung parliament of 137-137, the independent who decided to do business with one side of the majority, there is no majority party in this House. This is a new beginning, where for the first time, a majority has walked out from its own business" his statement read.
