The Minority side in Parliament says it would sponsor new amendments to the controversial Petroleum Revenue Management Bill when the House resumes sitting to finish work on the Bill in January 2011.

Parliament began a month-long recess last week to allow MPs observe the Christmas and New Year festivities.

The House was originally expected to pass the Bill before recess. But a tall list of proposed amendments filed by members compelled the House to out the Bill on hold until January 2011.

Speaking to Citi News, Minority Spokesperson on Finance, Dr. Anthony Akoto Osei, said the new amendments the Minority side intends to file are aimed at making the Bill a better document.

Dr. Akoto Osei disagreed with suggestions that the Minority’s position could defeat the principle of perpetual succession in governance.
