There has been so much brouhaha about the constituency seat at Dome Kwabenya. Adwoa Safo, the NPP law maker has fallen out with his party and now her own Majority side want her out. Adwoa Safo was one of the 3 MPs who were indicted and brought before the Privileges Committee over absenteeism. The Dome Kwabenya MP has missed 42 sittings and despite calls on her to explain herself, nothing has happened.
This forced the hand of President Akufo-Addo to revoke Adwoa Safo’s appointment as Minister for Gender, Children and Social protection. On the last day of Parliamentary sitting, Speaker Bagbin deferred judgement on what should happen to the seat. He noted that he will present a written ruling when the House resumes.
The First Deputy Speaker in an interview with TV3 has mentioned that any ruling from Bagbin that fails to declare the seat vacant will be taken to court.
According to Joe Osei Owusu, MP for Bekwai, Adwoa Safo has flouted all the necessary requirements by law and so has to go. He boldly stated that the Majority will go to court for redress if the seat isn’t declared vacant. It will be interesting to see what will happen when Parliament returns. Should the seat be declared vacant and a by election declared?
