MP for Ledzokuku, Okoe-Boye was vetted for the govt place Wednesday immediately after President Nana Akufo-Addo appointed him on April 6 in a reshuffle.
The plenary will now have to contemplate the report of the Appointments Committee on the President’s nominee when they satisfy.
This is the 2nd time MPs are staying recalled just after Speaker Oquaye suspended sitting down in a controversial choice on April 4.
The Dwelling was thanks to increase and go on recess but for some two months.
But the Speaker somewhat suspended sitting down indefinitely telling MPs, “we simply cannot go on holiday seasons due to the fact we are not in normal periods,” in reference to the Covid-19 outbreak.
The selection implies the Speaker can remember legislators on any working day he chooses to, without having the required 14-day see.
The National Democratic Congress MPs explained the Speaker as a dictator next his announcement.
They bemoaned lack of consultation in Prof. Oquaye’s determination.
“What he has accomplished continues to be the gravest ever risk to parliamentary democracy in Ghana and an assault on the minority in parliament.
“He only doesn’t regard owing course of action. He just doesn’t regard rule of law,” Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu stressed.
