The Minority Whip who also doubles as the Member of Parliament for Asawase Constituency Mohammed-Mubarak Muntaka has disclosed crafted plans to have the second deputy Speaker of Parliament who is in the person of Andrew Asiamah evacuated from the position in Parliament.

However, the Member of Parliament for Asawase Constituency Mohammed-Mubarak Muntaka speaking in an interview on Citi News rationalised his plans by explaining that, the Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament Andrew Asiamah has not been independent in the discharge of his duties in the current 8th Parliament in the country.

Furthermore, according to the Minority Whip Mohammed-Mubarak Muntaka, the Member of Parliament for Fomena joining the governing New Patriotic Party NPP members of Parliament during the vote cast on the infamous controversial E-Levy is a situation he is not in tandem with a provision in the 1992 constitution of Ghana.

“If you look at the 1992 constitution, Article 96(b)…Article 96 talks about two deputy speakers and the ‘b’ say that the two of them should not come from the same party…when we were electing him…we even nominated him [Andrew Asiamah] as the Second Deputy Speaker, we knew that he was independent so, after that he [Andrew Asiamah] wrote that he wanted to do business with the other side. Now you look at his relationship with them [and] it has gone beyond just doing business with them. he will attest to the fact or any genuine sincere person who wants to speak the truth will attest to the fact that he does everything just like any NPP member of the house…that is not right….this is something I feel very strongly and I have personally mentioned it to him and I’m going to bring it up in our caucus meeting and hopefully if the caucus agrees with me, we may have to come with a motion on the floor [to have him relinquish his position as second deputy speaker] and probably if we feel very strongly beyond that, we may have to go for interpretation on that aspect of the constitution”, Asawase MP explained.

Additionally, Mohammed-Mubarak Muntaka, the Member of Parliament for Asawase Constituency further added that the Second Deputy Speaker action was beyond the limit because he cannot act as the Speaker of Parliament at that time and as the Member of Parliament to partake in members voting which according to him is not transparent.

He, therefore, opines that he then has to withdraw the position of the Second Deputy Speaker of the 8th Parliament and be a member so that he can always join the New Patriotic Party NPP MPs in the House business.
