NPP MPs doze off after arriving early in Parliament to occupy Majority side


New Patriotic Party (NPP) MPs clad in white have arrived early to occupy the Majority side of House ahead of the first sitting of the 8th Parliament.

Some of the NPP MPs on social media said they had been in Parliament as early as 4 am for proceedings which are expected to start at 10 am.

In pictures flying on social media, some of the MPs were seen putting theirs heads on the table before them.

For the inauguration of the 8th Parliament, the National Democratic Congress MPs did something similar, arriving early to occupy the Majority side of the House.

The NPP and NDC MPs are yet to agree on which side has the Majority in Parliament.

NDC and NPP have 137 seats apiece, with one independent MP, Andrew Asiamah Amoah of Fomena, who has aligned with the NPP.

The House’s first engagement will be the resolution of who forms the Majority and Minority of the House.

Three previous meetings between the leadership of both the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Caucus and National Democratic Congress (NDC) Caucus in the House to resolve the matter proved futile.

It is expected that today’s sitting will see Speaker Alban Bagbin bring finality to the matter.
