The Members of Parliament resorted to fighting following disagreement on the passage of the E-Levy bill into law on Monday
Members of Parliament in Ghana were on each other’s throats on Monday evening following disagreement on the passage of the E-Levy bill.
The bone of contention over the bill which resulted in fisticuffs again in the House of Honourables emanated when the majority proposed that the bill should be passed under Certificate of Urgency.
In the absence of the Rt. Hon Speaker, Alban Bagbin, the proceedings was initially presided by First Deputy Speaker and MP for Bekwai, Joseph Osei-Owusu.
After deputy speaker of Parliament conducted voting by voice note to determine who supports the passage of the bill, chaos began since the minority challenged his verdict of being bias.
They claimed that he didn’t interprete the results, something which the majority also had issues with.
