Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu has expressed disappointment in the failure of President Akufo-Addo to touch on the shooting incident at the Techiman South collation center which resulted in two deaths.
According to Mr. Iddrisu, it is also not accurate for the President to say the next Parliament will be composed of almost equal number of MPs from both sides.
He said though per the EC’s declared results both the NDC and the NPP have equal numbers of 137 each, he’s hopeful that Techiman South and Sefwi Wiawso seats will eventually come to NDC to make it the majority side in the House.
First Deputy Speaker Joseph Osei Wusu, has also been reacting to the President’s address. He said the President was concise and straight to the point.
On the Minority’s criticism of the President not talking about the shooting incidence in Techiman South, Mr Osei-Wusu said it is far-fetched and wondered why the minority is not also talking about the incidents that led to the shooting incident.
Mr OseiWusu touched on the structure of the 8th Parliament which will be inaugurated on Thursday. He said in view of the fact that both NPP and NDC have equal number of seats, the side that the only independent MP-elect decides to sit will become the majority.
