Social media users have expressed displeasure over the scuffle that broke out in Parliament on Monday night when the House sat to deliberate the E-levy Bill.
The House was to decide whether the E-levy bill should be accepted under a certificate of urgency or not.
However, the sitting which was presided over by First Deputy Speaker, Joseph Osei-Owusu turned chaotic when the Minority side attempted to prevent the Deputy Speaker from vacating his chair to participate in the headcount voting process.
This resulted in a clash between the two sides in Parliament. Some MPs threw their fists while others fell to the ground. Proceeding was then adjourned due to the misconduct.
But Ghanaians say this conduct by their representatives is unacceptable particularly when a similar incident broke out on December 1 in Parliament over the approval of the 2022 budget. The Speaker’s chair was dragged from its position during the chaos.
They insists such acts should not be exhibited by individuals who hold the “Honourable” title.
