Majority Leader and Minister of Parliamentary Affairs, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu has called for close relations between Ghana and China at legislative level when the newly appointed Chinese Ambassador to Ghana called on the Speaker.

According to the Minister of Parliamentary Affairs most of the time there is collaboration between the Executive arm of government and not the legislature and sometimes leaders to the legislature being rushed to ratify agreements and even leading to the legislature disapproving.

The leader pointed out that the introduction of the Ghana-China Parliamentary Association would play a significant role to compare to find out how China had been able to sustain its Parliament without interruption for a long time.

Mr. Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu further added that he hopes there would not be interruption with the Ghanaian Parliamentary democracy and it has come to stay.

Again we have a huge infrastructure deficit, we spent huge amounts of money in building our roads but they get damage very often because of the heavy duty vehicles that use the roads and damage it, he added.

“With the Sinohydro coming on board and our railways almost nonexistent, when we have our railway revamped the huge haulage would go through that to preserve our roads, in this bauxite batter deal” he remarked.
