The Speaker of Parliament Alban Bagbin has left the NPP and NDC confused on who is majority in Parliament.
The speaker ruled NPP as the majority in parliament after reading out the independent Formena MP’s letter stating his decision to side with NPP.
NPP MPs started jubilation from soon after.
Soon after, the Leader of the NDC in the Chamber Haruna Iddrisu took to his feet and argued that the decision by the Fomena MP does not give the NPP superior numbers since he remains an independent MP.
Mr Iddrisu had to demand clarity from the speaker who further announced no party has the majority.
“I said the NPP and the Fomena MP together make up the majority group. I have not said the NPP has the majority in parliament. Time will tell. Let’s give ourselves a few more months and we will know who forms the majority and minority in this house,” he explained.
According to him the NPP together with the Fomena MP only constitute a majority group. He added the numerous court cases will soon throw up a clear majority and minority in the house.
He had stated emphatically that when it comes to numbers, the NPP is now majority because of the Formena MPs decision.
