Supreme Court Judges

The Supreme Court of Ghana in a landmark ruling has said that deputy Speakers of Parliament can vote even when they are presiding as Speaker.

The ruling on Wednesday, March 9, 2022, means that when a matter comes before Parliament that requires voting, a deputy Speaker of Parliament while presiding in the absence of the substantive Speaker of Parliament can also vote on the matter.

The ruling, therefore, affirms the position of the First Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Joseph Osei Owusu, that he did nothing wrong by voting to approve the 2022 budget, although he was presiding as speaker in the stead of Alban Bagbin.
