Mr. Speaker, It's Shameful For You To Attack The President & Judiciary Based On Emotions - Nana Ayew

Hon. Nana Ayew trade blows with Rt. Hon. Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin the speaker in a form of comment.

Nana Ayew, Member of Parliament for Effiduase-Asokore has described Speakers response towards SC rulings as shameful.

The MP said it is fascinating that, the speaker question the locus of the apex court to meddle in the ensuing confusion in parliament when the same court is there to settle disputes of such nature.

Mr Speaker it is shameful for you to attack the president and judiciary based on emotions and without recourse to extensive research on parliamentary practices elsewhere. Ghana is a member of the CPA( Commonwealth Parliamentary Association). However, all over the commonwealth of which Ghana is a member, I came across a very interesting trend.

As a matter of fact, the Supreme Court in the wisdom of the very learned judges decided to rectify the ambiguity in the constitution by ruling for deputy speakers who are MPs(unlike the speaker) to vote. The speaker of Ghana's Parliament says it's absurd, reckless and that the president is myopic for speaking on it.

Mr Speaker, please don't insult and let's apply ourselves to the wisdom of common practice and precedence. If you were guided by Erskine May, then, probably you wouldn't have occasioned this needless write-up.
