Members of the Majority caucus in Parliament may resort to the law court to decide the fate of the Member of Parliament for Dome-Kwabenya, Sarah Adwoa Safo.
Adansi Asokwa Member of Parliament (MP), K.T Hammond, who disclosed this on Citi TV/Citi FM’s news analysis programme, ‘The Big Issue’, said the court’s involvement may be the best option for the caucus, following the Speaker of Parliament’s decision to defer his ruling on Adwoa Safo.
The Privileges Committee had delivered a split decision on the fate of Adwoa Safo who has been absent in Parliament beyond the mandatory 15 days without permission.
According to a copy of the report, the Majority wants the seat declared vacant while the Minority jumped to the defence of the absentee MP, saying she still needed to be given a chance to explain herself.
Mr. Hammond rehashed the Majority MPs’ position, saying the Privileges Committee could have delivered a ruling without the Speaker’s involvement.
