In a show of solidarity, Minority Members of Parliament (MPs) abandon parliamentary proceedings to support their colleague and leader Dr Cassiel Ato Forson to court for the continuation of the ambulance case.

The Minority caucus had previously announced that they would not participate in chamber activities on days when their Leader is required to attend court for the ambulance purchase case, opting to wait until the court’s daily sessions are over.

The Majority Chief Whip, Frank Annoh-Dompreh, expressed his astonishment at the minority members’ absence from parliamentary proceedings.

Addressing Parliament on Thursday, Annoh-Dompreh commented on the minority’s decision to abstain from parliamentary duties, interpreting it as a revealing act.

“… It is quite a big surprise to me…They have elected to be absent.”

“Clearly they are demonstrating their true colours to the Ghanaian people,” he stated.

Meanwhile, the Minority Members upon appearing in the house have raised a concern of quorum, compelling the Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Andrew Asiamah Amoako to commence the processes for the adjournment of the house due to the lack of the required numbers of MPs for business to take place.
