The Minority, in same statement noted that “in that regard, we are resolved to pursue this matter further with the Right Honorable Speaker upon his return.”
The NDC Minority Caucus which I lead, and my good self, vehemently disagree with your position on the motion and your conduct in this matter. We take the strong view that your conduct affronts Orders 79, 81, 82, and 90 of our standing orders and can no longer be tolerated,” the Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu reiterated in his response to the First Deputy Speaker’s letter rejecting his motion.
Below is the full response from the Minority:
Majority Maucus in Parliament led by Osei Kyei-Mensah Bonsu on Tuesday, 30 November approved the 2022 Budget statement after the NDC MPs boycotted proceedings after failing to reach an agreement with the Majority over the status of the budget.
Although the Majority caucus insisted the rejection of the budget was unlawful, the Minority maintains due process in rejecting it.
