Minority Leader Mr. Haruna Iddrisu has served warning to the Majority Leader Osei-Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu that he would never have his peace until he brings the chairperson of the Electoral Commission to brief the House.

According to him the EC has bought new biometric machines and they need to come to the House with their road map for this year’s Presidential and Parliamentary election.

“They have to show us samples of the equipment they have acquired in other to discuss other issues. It is not acceptable he keeps shifting the goalpost, from June 9 to 16, 2020 and speaker you have to rule on this matter”.

He further told the House he could not rely on the assurance given by the Majority Leader on the matter, three weeks ago.

Responding to the Minority Leader’s question, Majority Leader drew the attention of his colleagues that if they had averted their minds to the order paper of Friday June 12, 2020, EC has been scheduled to meet the Special Budget Committee on Tuesday June 16, 2020 in committee room 1 & 2.

The EC officials will meet the Special Budget Committee at 9:00am and not 11:00am as advertised in the Order paper of Friday June 12 2020.
