The Member of Parliament for Nadowli Kaleo, Alban Bagbin in an interview monitored by Hbtvghana.com has said that The National Democratic Congress (NDC) to put their differences aside as the nation deals with the COVID-19 pandemic.
In an interview on Eyewitness News, The longest-serving MP, who is also the second deputy speaker of Parliament added that the Majority had on several occasions failed to actively engage the Minority regarding business in the House.
He indicated that the Majority was taking advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic to promote their interest, a situation he fears might lead to the creation of an autocratic regime.
“It is really a difficult situation. I sit down, I listen and get in touch with them and try to share my understanding of the standing orders and the practice but there is a difference between the two which is compounded by the Speaker’s interpretation and application of the rules so the very simple things that can be ironed out, always end up in acrimonious situations”, he said.
Mr. Babgin thus called on the Majority and Minority sides in Parliament to resolve their differences, especially in the wake of COVID-19.
