Members of Parliament belonging to the New Patriotic Party’s(NPP) side in parliament today arrived in parliament as early 4:00 am for business to begin, GhanaXtra.Com can report.
The Members of Parliament in their numbers were at the precinct of parliament very early which was very unusual.
Sources available to GhanaXtra.Com indicate that the New Patriotic Party(NPP) caucus took the decision to avert any surprise from the colleagues on the NDC’s side.
Checks by this portal indicate that NPP’s caucus is currently seated in the chamber and at the majority side.
Meanwhile, the Member of Parliament of Ofoase Ayirebi, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah says they took the decision considering the fact that the NDC pulled a fast one on them prior to the dissolution of parliament and the inauguration of the 8th Parliament.
The NPP and the NDC are fighting over who actually has the majority in parliament as both parties have 137 seats with one independent candidate.
