The old saying that ‘the Minority have their say but the Majority have their way’ is not working smoothly this time around in this current Parliament.
The Parliament of Ghana since independence has seemingly worked with a majority having its way. The 8th Parliament in the 4th Republic of Ghana has seen a shift in this and the leadership of the ruling party is feeling the heat.
This has forced a former Political Science lecturer, Dr. Amoako Baah, to take a swipe at the leadership of the ruling party, both in Parliament and in the party.
Dr. Amoako Baah alluded to fact that “They are used to the old ways.
Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu championed the absolute majority in Parliament and must learn to build Consensus from within”.
He said this when he was asked about his impression on the mood of the current Parliament of Ghana on Citi FM’s Big Issue.
“Things have changed and we must find new ways to work. The party executives must also play their role. They must be in charge and work. You see Asiedu Nketiah in Parliament and you see him directing affairs and we do not see that from the other side”, Dr. Amoako added.
