Some Minority Members of Parliament, who were bill to ask questions on the floor of the House, were absent due to the ongoing executive elections by the opposition National Democratic congress.

The affected members who were not on the floor to ask questions, sought permission, and the Speaker of Parliament Professor Mike Oquaye directed that their questions be rescheduled.

Minority leader Haruna Iddrisu pleaded with the Speaker for other MPs to ask questions in the name of MPs who were not around but his request was denied.

Professor Mike Aaron Oquaye noted that he is the only available Speaker and there had been arrangement at an earlier meeting that, due to the volume of work on the floor there should not be delay.

The Speaker further noted that there would be Parliamentary service board meeting of which the Minority Leader is part and there should not be any move to cause undue delay of business.
