RIGHT ALBAN SUMANI BAGBIN’S SEAT AS SPEAKER OF PARLIAMENT DANGLING
HISTORY CONTINUES TO UNFOLD IN GHANA’S 8TH PARLIAMENT
JULY 29, 2021
Second face of history at GHANA’S Parliament is looming as the seat of the speaker of the 8th Parliament is not safe at all.
The question is COULD RIGHT ALBAN BAGBIN LOSES HIS SEAT IF AFTER THE ELECTIONS OF THE EMBATTLED NDC MP WHOSE SEAT HAS BEEN SET ASIDE BY CAPE COAST HIGH COURT COMES TO NPP?
Ever since President Jerry John Rawlings transformed Ghana into democratic state after he had ruled Ghana as a junta for 11 years uninterrupted, the speaker of GHANA’S Parliament has since been on the majority side. The exception is this current Parliament where the seat of the speaker was decided through simple majority elections by the members of the house and won by the NDC.
The reason that culminated the election of speaker between the NPP and NDC was that the total number of both sides of the house equilibriumised as both of the two parties NPP/NDC polled 137/137. The diocitic contention prevailing in the Parliament now is that a high Court in Ghana has ruled and declared one of the NDC members of Parliament seat null and void pending the MP’S dual citizenship, twisting the beam balance from being on the equilibrium.
NPP now holds a distinctive majority of 137 seats as against NDC depletion to 136 seats. The statusquo has since 1993 been that the majority in the house owns the speaker. Now NPP is the majority, could it be possible for the minority owns the speaker – interesting days ahead.
RIGHT HONOURABLE BAGBIN IS HOT🔥HOT!!!!
GHANA’S 8TH PARLIAMENT IS ABNORMALITY IN GHANA’S DEMOCRACY
