New Regions: Minority MPs walk out of parliament


The Minority in parliament on Friday, 16 November 2018 staged a walkout after they had raised preliminary objections to the debate on C.I. (Constitutional Instrument) 109, which will give legal backing to the referendum on the creation of six additional regions.

The Minority argued that the House cannot debate the approval of the C.I. when the lawmakers do not have copies of the Justice Brobbey Commission of Enquiry report, which recommended the creation of the new regions.

The Speaker of Parliament, Prof Aaron Mike Oquaye allowed the debate to continue without the Minority participating.

The report was subsequently approved forcing the Minority to stage a walkout.
