Ernesto Yeboah's Act In Parliament; Childish And Unlawful

Politics | news

The Second Vice Chairman for Suame Constituency of New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Richard Akwasi Asante, has described the disorderly act of Ernesto Yeboah, in the parliament house as childish and unlawful.

Mr Ernesto Yeboah, a dismissed member of the Convention People's Party (CPP), together with others stormed Parliament house on Friday and jointly shouted "drop that new chamber". to prevent deliberations on the issue.

Speaking to the media, Mr Asante, expressed worry at the disorderly behaviour of Ernesto Yeboah for disrupting proceedings in the house.

"Even when Members of Parliament (MPs) disrupt parliamentary proceedings, it constitutes Contempt of Parliament hence punishable" Mr Asante said.

The decision to construct a new chamber to house 450 legislators, was taken by the Parliamentary Services Board, with Majority Leader ,Hon Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu and Hon Haruna Iddrisu, Minority Leader, as part of the decision-making body.

According to him, government and parliament, as a body, have not taken any decisive stand on the new chamber therefore it is unfortunate for any person or group of persons to even demonstrate for it's withdrawal.

The Speaker of Parliament , Prof Mike Oquaye, formally only wrote to the President Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo, to cut a sod for the project but the Majority Leader timely intervened to halt the ceremony, to pave way for MPs to make inputs first.

"Presidency has denied any involvement in the decision of the new chamber and it will never be constructed" Mr Asante disclosed.

Mr Asante disclosed that to prevent such disorderly acts in future, Mr Ernesto Yeboah, and others should be dealt with according to the existing laws to deter others from emulating such uncivilized behaviour.
