Minority walkout won’t stop ministerial approval – Afenyo-Markin

Majority Leader, Alexander Kwamina Afenyo-Markin, has downplayed the impact of the Minority’s walkout from Parliament, stating that it will not hinder the approval process of President Akufo-Addo’s ministerial nominees.

Afenyo-Markin said the Minority’s departure from the chamber is merely symbolic, as they had already participated in the day’s proceedings and were recorded as such in Parliament’s records. He emphasized that this action does not contravene the Constitution.

According to him, during committee-level discussions, both the Majority and Minority had agreed to approve the ministerial nominees by consensus.

However, the Minority later changed their stance, insisting that approval should be made through a majority decision.

The Majority Leader’s comments come after the Minority staged a walkout in protest of the approval process, citing concerns over the size of the government. Despite this, the Majority remains committed to seeing the approval process through.
