The Member of Parliament for Ejisu Constituency and also Deputy Minister for Finance Hon. Dr. John Ampontuah Kumah, has lamented that he is now afraid to step foot at the Parliament House due to yesterday’s clash between the Majority and Minority
Some Members of Parliament (MP) yesterday night were engaged in a fistfight following a disagreement during the voting on government’s E-levy bill.
The fight ensued when the MPs were voting in a headcount to decide whether the E-levy bill should be accepted under a certificate of urgency.
The Minority had attempted to stop the First Deputy Speaker, Joseph Osei-Owusu, who was presiding over the House, from leaving his seat and participating in the voting process.
This infuriated the Majority MP, who met them at the Speaker’s table to challenge the NDC MPs.
However, the Member of Parliament for Ejisu says Parliament is becoming scarier because when any MP disagrees with an idea then it turns to a fight
According to Hon John Kumah, Parliament is now not a safe place at all because the minority are now becoming more violent I decision making which is not helping Ghana’s democracy
