NPP invades parliament at dawn to reclaim the majority seats

The Members of Parliament of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) today stormed the parliament at exactly 4:00 am to reclaim the majority seats.

This is after the National Democratic Congress (NDC) took over the seats on Thursday, January 7 during the inauguration of the eight Parliament.

Their presence in the House is approximately six hours before the regular sitting.

Photos sighted by Spot On News showed the governing party members sleeping at the House after arriving early before the sitting time.

Clad in white, the then Minority arrived in Parliament hours before sitting to take over the right hand side of Parliament.

The situation left the members of the governing party in shock when they arrived in the House.

For about 20 minutes, Adansi Asokwa MP, K.T. Hammond, and former Interior Minister, Ambrose Dery along with former Defense Minister, Dominic Nitiwul tried though unsuccessfully to convince the minority to move back to their seats.

The situation subsequently led to insults being hurled at each other and near brawls.

The question of who occupies the Majority side of the House has been a big issue since both the NPP and opposition NDC have 137 members each.

Since the inauguration of the House, members of the two caucuses in Parliament have taken to social media and other news outlets to insist on their claims of who has a right to be called the majority.

Leading the argument for the NPP, the leader of its caucus, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu said the decision by the only independent candidate in the House to join the NPP, is a clear indication that they are in the majority.

But the NDC MPs have rubbished that argument.

The leader of their caucus, Haruna Iddrisu said the Fomena MP choosing to join the NPP does not influence the numbers.

He explained that his caucus would only agree to sit at the left-hand side of the Speaker if the NPP agrees to respect their number and influence.

Meanwhile, the Speaker, Alban Bagbin is expected to put the case to rest during the first sitting of the House today.
