A leading member of the Coalition of Concerned Members of Techiman Ofori Ankrah has called on the two deputy speakers of Parliament to eschew partisan lines and support the Speaker to push the development of the nation to the next level.
He said the new Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin is a beacon of discipline, who is embedded with high democratic traits.
He described Mr. Bagbin as a teacher and proactive lawmaker with excellent legal brains, who would make the Eighth Parliament interesting and one of the best in Ghana’s history.
The Bono East Regional Secretary of the NPP Richard Asamoah said Mr Bagbin’s election is a step to create equity in the decision-making process of the House and his influence would help to greatly reduce the ‘winner-takes-all’ system.
He called on the 275 members to bury their differences, forge ahead in unity and support the Speaker in passing laws that would spur rapid socio-economic growth GNA
