Majority Chief Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu has acknowledged unequivocally that nobody in Parliament can impede authorities enterprise.
The chief, who can be the Minister of Parliamentary Affairs, made these remarks in his closing remarks after Electoral Fee officers defined why they needed to make use of the Ghana card as the only real type of identification for brand new voter registration.
The Minority in Parliament has acknowledged that it’ll not help the Electoral Fee’s proposed Constitutional Instrument (CI) till the Nationwide Identification Authority (NIA) resolves points with Ghana Card acquisition (EC).
As a part of the brand new CI, the EC intends to make the Ghana Card the only real identification doc for voter registration for the 2024 elections.
Talking on the ground of Parliament following a presentation by EC and NIA officers, Minority Chief, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson mentioned “Utilizing the Ghana card as the one technique of voter registration will negatively influence the electoral roll and deny some in any other case certified individuals from registering to vote. We can’t take assurances as the idea. Let the NIA resolve the challenges with the issuance of the Ghana card first. Till that, I’m sorry, we will by no means be a part of that.”
Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu posited that the Minority lacks the authority to forestall the federal government from conducting enterprise in Parliament.
“The Minority has given a powerful indication that, if the problems they’ve raised aren’t attended to, they may oppose it and carry by with their opposition. I don’t know what he means by that. We try to construct a consensus, however the backside line is that, no one on this home can stop the federal government from presenting its enterprise to the home. Let me state that emphatically, completely no one. That’s for the avoidance of doubt.”
