Minority storms out of debate on Cash-for-Seat Committee report
The Minority has staged a walkout from Parliament over the “cash for seat” committee report on the probe of claims the Trade Ministry Hon. Alan Kyeremanten extorted $100,000 from expatriates to allow them to sit close to the Nana Addo during the Ghana Expatriates Business Awards in December 2017.
This is because the Minority claims most of the MPs have not read the 146-page report that has been put before them to be debated. The Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu, held that under the circumstances, his side of the House could not take part in the deliberations since most of them got a copy of the report just today. He argued that per the Standing Orders of Parliament, no motion shall be debated until at least 48 hours sitting days have elapsed.
