The conundrum on who has the majority in parliament between the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) still continues as the two political heavyweights are still tied at 137 apiece.
It’s against this backdrop that the NPP Member of Parliament (MP) for Kwadaso in the Ashanti Region, Dr. Kingsley Nyarko, the party which forms the government is deemed to be the majority in parliament, not the other way round.
“The NPP which has formed the government is the majority now. I don’t think Bagbin can say the NDC has a majority…it won’t happen!” Dr. Kingsley Nyarko fumed on Oyerepa FM.
He further said;
“Caucus in parliament can come together to form the majority in parliament. As it stands, 137 – 137 and the independent former MP has declared to join us. So as we speak, they are 137 and we’re 138”, he observed
“Our standing orders say that the party with numerical strength and has formed the government is the majority so NPP forms the majority.”
