The Majority Leader of the ruling New Patriotic Party NPP in the Parliament House, Hon Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu has said that the General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress NDC, Asiedu Nketia is wrong for saying that the Majority Leader is not the leader of the House in the country.

He further added that the General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress NDC, Asiedu Nketia may not understand some Parliament practices in the country despite he being a former Member of Parliament.

Furthermore, he, therefore, clarify that the Majority Leader in the country always doubles as the leader of the Parliament House and for that matter, Asiedu Nketia may be ignorant for saying that.

However, the Majority Leader of the ruling New Patriotic Party NPP in the Parliament House, Hon Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu speaking in an interview on Okay FM indicated that he is surprised at the National Democratic Congress General Secretary for saying that because he was a member of Parliament in the country and he does not know or understand these norms or practice in the nation.

“Asiedu Nketia has been a Member of Parliament before but he does not understand the rules of parliament. The majority leader is always the leader of the house. The majority doubles as the leader of the house”, he disclosed.

Meanwhile, the Members of Parliament in the country are preparing to resume duties and therefore, the House is expected to reconvene on the 25th of January 2022 which will, however, be the second session of the Eighth Parliament of Ghana.

It could be acknowledged that the first session of the Eighth Parliament was allegedly adjourned due to the ignition of controversy in the Parliament House about the proposed Electronic Transactions Levy by the government of Ghana.

The controversy erupted when members of Parliament were taking votes to determine whether the E-Levy should however be adopted under the certificate of urgency in the country.

This compels the second Deputy Speaker of Parliament to vacate his seat to partake in the voting process thereby magnetising a repulsion from the Minority where the Majority to on the other hand are in support of his action.
