The recent tussle in parliament over the posture of the Minority took centre stage in the closing remarks of both sides of the house and that of the speaker as the house rounded up its business for recess.
The Minority Leader Haruna Idrissu said the minority remains firm and resolute in articulating its concerns in the house. He said his side will help the speaker run the work of the legislative body but was quick to add that their avenues of airing their views must not be short changed.
The majority leader Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu said the airing of anyone’s views goes with responsibility.
He said the right of the minority to have their say in the house is undeniable but it must be done by the rules.
The Speaker, Professor Mike Oquaye acknowledged that the house consists of different groups but members must let the national interest be the overriding principal.
He said MPs must always protect the dignity of parliament.
