Please follow me to get access to all my newly published articles.

The majority leader in parliament has recently sparked massive stir, debates and arguments across all social media platforms after he boldly sent another strong message to the speaker of parliament, Alban Bagbin over 2022 budget rejection.

Not long ago, the speaker of parliament, Alban Bagbin took the privilege to finally react to the most anticipated “Agyenkwa” budget as the unexpected happened when he boldly rejected the 2022 budget with the help of some of the parliamentarians especially the minority in parliament.

However, the final decision taken by the speaker of parliament, Alban Bagbin over the most anticipated 2022 Budget undoubtedly caused massive reactions online as most parliamentarians especially the majority unexpectedly walked out of the house since the final decision didn’t go as planned.

With respect to this, the majority leader in parliament, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu recently took the privilege to share his immense opinions and thoughts aside sharing his concerns over the unexpected rejection of the “Agyenkwa” 2022 budget by the speaker of parliament, Alban Bagbin.

Speaking in a recent interview with media personnels TV3 Network, the majority leader, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu highlighted that, the speaker of parliament, Alban Bagbin had no right to reject the most anticipated 2022 budget since the speaker’s claims for rejection of the 2022 budget was unconstitutional, void and of no legal effect.

“It has not happened before in the house. He went ahead and did what he did in our absence because we were not in the chamber. He went ahead to state that, the motion with the budget is lost; that whole procedure was unconstitutional. As far as we’re concerned, it was null and void; it has no binding effect on anybody”, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu emphatically stated.

“The motion on the budget as far as we are concerned has not been pronounced on by parliament; it’s still standing in the name of the minister for Finance, Ken Ofori Atta. In the fullness of time, a properly constituted house not one presiding over by the right Honorable speaker will make the decision. When it comes to decision making, it’s not Article 102 that applies, but Article 104 that comes to play; we thought the speaker knows the fundamentals of the constitution. He knows that these two of them were not in the chamber, why did he do that?”, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu emphatically queried.

In conclusion, the majority leader in parliament, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu made it clear whilst emphatically stating that, “ the speaker ought to have known that, that number would not support the decision of the house. So that purported decision is a nullity and doesn’t have any effect on anybody. The motion moved by the Finance Minister has not been lost, it still stands”.
