Approval of new ministers: Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu expresses disappointment in minority leadership


The Parliamentary Majority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, has condemned the leadership of the minority caucus in Parliament over its posture on the approval of six new ministerial appointees.

He said,  the House was scheduled to vote on the approval of the six ministerial nominees of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, but the leaders of the minority caucus said they were going to speak to their members to see whether the approval could be done by consensus.

Speaking in an interview with Neat FM on Friday, March 24, 2023, which was monitored by ApexnewsGh, the majority leader stated that the vote was delayed for hours only for the minority leaders to come and say that they were sticking to the party position.

“In the beginning, they (the minority leaders) said that we should vote on the approval of the ministers, then later they said the approval should be done by consensus. Yesterday, they came back to tell us that we should vote for the approval of the ministers.

“The position of their party is that they should not approve the ministers, but they said we should give them time for them to consult the party, only for them to return to tell us that they are taking their party’s position.

“I was disappointed because they gave us the indication that they were going to change their minds. If they knew they were not going to change their stance, then we should have voted on the approval early,” he said in Twi.
