It was an interesting panel discussion on TV3’s New Day as Kamal Deen, a Director of Communications for the ruling government clashed with Sam George, MP for Ningo Prampram. Both panelists disagreed with each other when they were presented with the landmark ruling that the Supreme Court gave regarding the right of Deputy Speakers to vote during deliberations.
With disagreement, Johnny Hughes asked Sam George if Ghanaians are to expect some fisticuffs this year too. It can be recalled that at the beginning of the year leaders of both sides of the house apologized for the brawls of last year and pledged to do the right things in Parliament. Sam George rather gave an interesting response
“I have never had a time when the leadership of the Minority have called us and said today we are going into a meeting to fight. However, members of Parliament swear an oath to defend the constitution” Sam George said.
In explaining he said that in defense of the constitution, the constitution said that even when murder is committed in the defense, it is no crime. Sam George boldly declared that all 137 members of the NDC in Parliament are passionate about preventing any illegality from being perpetuated in Parliament.
