January 7, 2013

Members of Parliament of the sixth Parliament had little business to do on their first day of work on Tuesday after their swearing in on Monday January 7, 2013.

Business in the House, which lasted barely an hour, was mainly characterized by correction of votes and proceedings with several of the newly elected MPs having to correct their names, which had been wrongly spelt.

Most of the married women MPs who had their names with the title Miss were quick to effect the corrections.

Few others who had titles of Doctor omitted from their names accordingly ensured that the correction were done.

It was also evidently clear that some of the new MPs were alien to the proceeding on the floor of House as some of them stood up and started contributing without the Speaker’s permission while others also spoke without switching on their microphones.

After an hour of business on the Floor, the Majority Leader Benjamin Kumbour moved for the adjournment of the House and was seconded by the Minority Leader Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu.
