Speaker Alban Sumana Bagbin says agreement working in Parliament will endure should the Majority Caucus keep on attacking his character.
Refering to attacks by the Deputy Majority Leader, Alexander Afenyo Markin and other New Patriotic Party (NPP) MPs, Mr Bagbin saw that their exercises discourage any chance of any goal in the House.
In December 2021, Mr Afenyo-Markin blamed the Speaker for planning with his party to guarantee that budget was not passed.According to him, when authority of the House had met with the Speaker to decide the most ideal way to determine the stalemate over the budget, Mr Bagbin insinuated some dooming online media responses coordinated at him by political pundit Kevin Taylor.
Yet, in a meeting with state telecaster GBC, Mr Bagbin said, "truth be told, one of them said I ought to figure out how to lead. This is a result of the degree of administration I am at, he [Afenyo Markin] doesn't comprehend it."You come and by and by attacking me, then, at that point, you come to the House and you expect that we ought to have that soul of agreement building; things don't work that way," he said.
Mr Bagbin further charged the First Deputy Speaker, Joseph Osei Owusu of causing the failure that broke out in Parliament in December.According to him, the Bekwai legislator's choice to take an interest in the democratic cycle on the E-levy while managing the House was out of turn."To be straightforward with you, my First Deputy Speaker was off-base in declaring that he planned to cast a ballot, thus when the Second Deputy Speaker casted a ballot, he then, at that point, approached him to come and take over so that he'd likewise proceed to cast a ballot… that is the thing that prompted the fisticuffs," Mr Bagbin said.
"I left Parliament later 10 pm, and I sent my end comments for the afternoon, and that is for the meeting through my attendant to the Second Deputy Speaker that at the end of the discussion, 'you will peruse this as my end comments for the meeting.' And so I had pulled out that I won't be accessible even to peruse my end comments, and I left for my home since I was so tired.""Now what occurred on the floor, I am being supposed to be the reason for it; all in all, where could we presently be? This attempt at finger pointing would not wash; it would not. It was a cheap shot to me," he demanded.
