“Speaker agrees NPP is majority in Parliament” – Mensah-Bonsu


The NDC and the NPP have engaged in endless debates over who has the majority and is entitled to sit on the right side of the Speaker. It seems the debate of who takes the majority in Parliament has been settled as there appears to be a conclusive acceptance from the two political parties.

A statement from NPP Member of Parliament for Suame, Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu, has revealed that the Speaker of Parliament, Rt Hon. Alban Sumana Bagbin agrees that the NPP caucus constitute the majority in Parliament.

Hon. Kyei Mensah Bonsu on GHOne TV explained, that the decision in official writing by the Second Deputy of Parliament and Fomena MP, Hon. Andrew Amoako Asiamah to do business with the NPP caucus clearly indicates they will have the majority numbers in Parliament.

He also rejected claims that the meeting with the Speaker on Tuesday and Wednesday ended inconclusively saying even though some decisions must still be ironed out.

Both the NPP and the NDC have 137 seats each in the house with no clear majority.
