They were accompanied by their teachers numbering about six (6).

Mr. Emmanuel Bedzrah took the students through parliamentary procedures and further pointed out that there are various committees that work in Parliament and after their work it is brought to the plenary for discussion and adoption.

And further mentioned that there are two dominant parties in Parliament, Majority side made up of the ruling government the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the opposition National Democratic Congress.

Some of the students wanted to know if the Legislative House was made up of only the NPP MPs. But the MP explained that it comprised of both sides of the house.

He further pointed out to them that the House works on consensus basis to reach a decision and added that most MPs go for committee meetings that is why you do not see most of them in the chamber whiles others are caught up in traffic.
