Parliament to meet over Mahama’s ‘denigrating comments’ about Minority

The House will hold a special closed door session later Thursday to discuss what the Minority describes as denigrating comments by President Mahama about their work.

Deputy Minority leader, Dominic Nitiwul, says the President’s comments last week that Minority MPs are sleeping on their job is hurting the caucus and only a comprehensive resolution of the issue will get their members to fully participate in the business of the house.

On Wednesday the Minority succeeded in preventing the start of the debate on the 2016 budget.

Deputy Majority leader, Alfred Agbesi and First Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Ebo Barton-Odro addressed the House after a similar closed door session.

Meanwhile, Deputy Majority Chief Whip Sampson Ahi says the Minority is only trying to sabotage government business.

On Wednesday, the Minority succeeded in preventing the start of a debate and approval of the 2016 budget and other business of government.
