Mahama fond of constitutional blunders – Minority Leader

Minority Leader Osei-Kyei Mensa-Bonsu has expressed worry about the incessant blunders he believes President John Dramani Mahama is constitutionally committing.

He called on his advisors to be up to the task “but [the president] himself has been a member of Parliament and I thought these things should be at his finger tips”.

The Suame Constituency Member of Parliament made this known on Tuesday, January 26 in an interview with TV3’s Stephen Anti.

He cited how the president had travelled out of the country without recourse to Parliament only for members to be informed at a short notice.

He also cited another “constitutional blunder” recently committed by the president in his nominations.

“For instance, in Ashanti Region, where he has removed a minister. Now, he nominates another person to be vetted by Parliament and the constitution provides that deputy ministers can only be nominated in consultation with the substantive ministers.”

Mr Mensa-Bonsu wants the president to be up and doing.

“You don’t need an Attorney General to advise you on this,” he stressed.
