I Am Ready To Sit Till 2am To Preside On This Issue – Alban Bagbin Tells MPs

It will be another rollercoaster night in Parliament as another debate starts. Tonight will see the MPs debate the first report of the Appointments Committee. Earlier on there was a vote count as to whether Parliament should debate the issue tonight. The Minority had argued that the debate should wait till later but the Majority refused.

In the ensuing vote the Majority won by 137 votes as against 125 by the Minority. The Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin then ruled that the debate will go on as expected. The debate is to bother on the list of 13 minister nominees either on pending or rejected. 

In the resulting modalities for debate Osei Kyei Mensah proposed 4 members for both sides; 3 debaters plus the leader of the side. Haruna Iddrisu however objected and proposed 5+1. In the end Alban Bagbin ruled that he sides with the 5 debaters plus the leaders topping it up.

“I am ready if I have to sit here till 2am to preside on this issue” Alban Bagbin said.

Arguments have began from both sides as to what should happen to the minister nominees who couldn't make it.

What are your expectations on the list of 13 nominees on standby or rejection? Will a vote of the plenary save them? Share your thoughts.
