[Video] NPP, Fomena MP declared ‘majority group’ in Parliament

The Speaker of Parliament, Alban Sumana Bagbin, has officially declared the New Patriotic Party (NPP) caucus and the Independent Fomena Member of Parliament as the majority side of the House.

He made the declaration Friday, January 15 after the Fomena MP wrote to the Speaker announcing his intention to align with the NPP for purposes of business transactions in the House.

This declaration is expected to bring finality to what has been a raging controversy with each of the sides claiming to be the majority in parliament, even though the numbers do not support their claims.

The Speaker, in making the declaration reiterated the fact that both the NDC and the NPP have 137 seats each, but that the NPP together with the Fomena seat makes them the “majority group” in the House.
