Member of Parliament for Lambussie Dery Edward Kaale-Ewola has sent the strongest indication to the Majority side of the House that Minority would start raising issue of quorum if they continue to stay away from coming to the chamber to do business.

According to the Lambussie legislator out of the one hundred and sixty-nine (169) members of the Majority only twenty showed up to do business on the floor on Wednesday 30th May 2018.

The first Deputy Speaker, Joseph Osei-Owusu was in the chair directing affairs of the House when the Lambussie legislator raised the issue on the floor of the House.

He further drew the first Deputy Speaker’s attention that business cannot go on, on the floor of the House if there is no quorum and it was becoming unbecoming for MPs on the Majority side not to come to the House to do business.

“If for nothing at all MPs should come and at least to listen to the Speakers prayer before going to do other business, look at the order paper we have only one committee meeting, look at the House what baffles me is about the Majority side twenty members(20) out of the one hundred and sixty-nine(169) members”.

Mr. Speaker we may pardon the Majority today, but going forward in the future we would not accept anything or tolerate it, he said
