Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram Samuel Nartey George is lamenting over the delay in the review of the standing orders which Speaker Professor Mike Aaron Oquaye had promise it would be worked on during the life time of the seven Parliament of the fourth Republic.

According to the Ningo-Prampram legislator the review has taking too long passing a decade, where there are challenges that the standing order needs to address.

He further lamented that time given for committees to do their work is not enough and gave example of the United States of America where, a committee of senate takes sometimes two or three days to interrogate an issue.

Again the Vice Presidents grand plan of opening up the economy through the digital address system falls under communications committee, “we do not have much time to interrogate at the committee level and the media needs to do a critical work”, he said.
