• The NPP and NDC MP's have been meeting over the matter in order to reach a consensus to allow peace to prevail before the 8th parliament begins business.
Director of the Public Affairs Directorate of Parliament, Kate Addo, says the New Patriotic Party(NPP) will form the majority in the 8th Parliament.
She confirmed the news in an exclusive interview with Atinka TV’s parliamentary correspondent, Afia Kwarteng on Tuesday.
Madam Addo indicated the two sides of the House have been meeting over the matter in order to reach a consensus to allow peace to prevail before the 8th parliament begins business.
On January 7, Ghanaians watched in dismay for hours as elected MPs displayed uncouth behaviors when the time came for the House to elect a Speaker.
While some have described the actions by the MPs as “distasteful and disgraceful”, others have called for investigations and subsequent sanctions to be meted out to any MP found culpable.
Madam Kate Addo, Director of Public Affairs of Parliament, explained that Parliament would, also like to put those incidents behind it and work towards a more focused and unified membership aimed at promoting the best of parliamentary practices and good governance.
