Member of Parliament for Ho West, Emmanuel Kwasi Bedzrah has taken a swipe at the Majority Whips for not performing their duties to get their members on the floor of the House.

This follows the Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram raising issue of quorum on the floor of the House for the third day running.

According to the Ho West lawmaker he was in a Parliamentary friendship Association meeting when he heard the bell being rang, he had to stop and rush back to the chamber.

“Those raising issues of quorum have their right to do so, but we should know that the RTI has been with us for a decade. Civil society and the whole nation is watching us on this issue but for some technicalities we would have passed it in the sixth Parliament”.

He further informed the House that the Minority side of the House is ready to work, but the Majority side who should be pushing government business on the floor of the House is not doing much.

First Deputy Speaker Joseph Osei Owusu on this part cautioned the Ho West legislator against the debate of, “your side, our side debate”

He further stated that he has a list of MPs who are absent with permission from the House, whiles others are also sitting in committee meetings.
