The General Secretary of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Nana Yaa Gyantua, says the rejection of the budget is in the right direction, this according to her, it would pave the way for the majority to put things in order.
‘’ I think the majority would have acted the same if they were in opposition, parliament cannot approve something which would not benefit the country’’ she noted.
Adding that the majority walking out from parliament ‘’for me, was a wrong move’’ she said.
The 2022 budget statement was on Friday rejected by the country’s Parliament after a heated debate.
The rejection was made possible after all 137 Minority Members of Parliament (MPs) voted against the motion on Friday while members of the Majority Caucus had abandoned their seats in protest against alleged bias on the part of the Speaker of Parliament
Prior to the crucial voting, the Speaker had called for a headcount to establish if the House had formed a quorum in order to proceed.
A quorum was formed per the Speaker’s judgment even though members of the Majority caucus had staged a walkout.
All members of the Minority Caucus proceeded to reject the 2022 budget when the question on the motion for the approval of the budget was put out.
The House is expected to reconvene today, Tuesday, November 30th to deliberate further on the matter as the Majority cry foul.
Speaking with Kwaku Dawuro on Accra-Base Kingdom FM Anopa Nko Mo, said based on what happened last Friday, shows clearly that some of our leaders are not capable of ruling the country.
I believe the NPP and its members should reconsider their decisions and put proper measures in place next time.
