Minority may find themselves out of Parliament – Bagbin

Minority Leader of the Fourth Parliament of the Fourth Republic Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin has hinted that the actions of the Minority Members of Parliament may land them outside the House.

The Member of Parliament for Nadowli Kaleo has, therefore, given his backing to three Ghanaian citizens, who have filed a writ at the Supreme Court to get it to declare the 123 seats of the New Patriotic Party’s members vacant.

The three are also seeking interpretation of some articles in the 1992 Constitution.

Speaking on TV3 News on Wednesday, the immediate past Minister of Health condemned semblances the Minority draws from his press conference in 2002 after then president, John Agyekum Kufuor delivered the state-of-the-nation address.

According to him, it was a mere analysis of the two years of NPP’s government and not an alternative address on the state of the nation.

He mentioned that the actions of the current Minority is unconstitutional.

“The refusal of the Minority to recognize the legality and validity of the election of His Excellency President John Dramani Mahama is unconstitutional,” he stated.

“When the actions of Parliament are within the powers and the procedures of the House, it is a closed book. But when those conducts and actions and activities are infringing on the law, the courts have the right to probe into it and declare.”
