Right Hon. Alban Bagbin, The Speaker of Parliament has Cautioned President Nana Akufo-Addo against appointing too many Members of Parliament (MP’s) as ministers of state.
Delivering A Speech At The First Business Sitting Of The 8th Parliament, Right Hon. Albany Bagbin Said, This arrangement has served to unbalanced the relationship between the Executive and Parliament and affected adversely the ability of Parliament and MP’s to Carry out faithfully their representative roles.
“As a former Member of this House, With a Parliamentary career as long and as old as the 4 Republic, One thing I do know for sure is that drawing a large number of ministers and Deputy Ministers of the state from the Membership of Parliament is unhelpful to the business of Parliament.” He Explained.
The Speaker also charged the MP’s to be mindful of the fact that their Parliamentary duties come before their ministerial roles.
The Act, However, Allows the president to appoint a person to perform the function of all those mentioned for a specific period. Some MPs have been tipped to retain their ministerial position.
A number of the ministers in the previous Akufo-Addo government have been named as caretaker Ministers until the President makes new appointments.
