Seek review of judgement on voting rights of Deputy Speakers

Published

on


The Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, is urging the applicant in the case that sought the Supreme Court’s interpretation of laws on the voting powers of Deputy Speakers of Parliament to seek a review of the judgement.

“I encourage the plaintiff to go for a review,” Mr. Bagbin said in a statement.

Mr. Bagbin believes that the judgement of the court on the matter is absurd, reckless and constitutes interference in the activities of the legislature.

The Supreme Court ruled that a Deputy Speaker of Parliament, or any other member of the legislature presiding over business of the House, does not lose his or her right to vote while presiding.

Such a Speaker or Member can also be counted as part of the quorum for decision-making in the House under Article 104(1) of the 1992 Constitution.

The Court, consequently, struck down Order 109 (3) of the Standing Orders of Parliament, describing it as “unconstitutional”.

The Order provides that a Deputy Speaker or any other member of Parliament presiding over the business of the House shall not retain his or her original vote while presiding.

The judgement has elicited several reactions, including from President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

The Speaker of Parliament believes that the Supreme Court’s position on the matter is wrong and deserves to be reviewed.

“The SC decision is, to say the least, not only an absurdity but a reckless incursion into the remit of Parliament. The trend of unanimity is equally troubling. It doesn’t help explore and expand our legal jurisprudence,” he stated.

He, therefore, believes the plaintiff, a lawyer cum law lecturer, Justice Abdulai should seek a review of the judgement.

The two tigers belonging to business mogul Nana Kwame Bediako, popularly known as Freedom Jacob Caesar, pose no threats to residents at Wonda World Estates, officials of the Wildlife Division of the Forestry Commission say.

Some inhabitants of the estate located at Avenue Lincoln, near the British High Commission at Ridge in Accra, had expressed concern over the presence of the two tigers at the estate.

They claimed they feel unsafe sharing the estate with the carnivorous animals and have called on appropriate authorities to relocate them.

However, the Director of Operations at the Wildlife Division of the Forestry Commission, Luri Kanton, indicated that “the tigers are safe, healthy and well protected and relocation will be done after investigations”.

After visiting the premises of the Wonda World Estate where the tigers are being kept, Mr. Kanton told the media on Friday, May 20, 2022, that “a new structure would’ve to be constructed at a new location before the relocation of the animals could be done”.

This, he said, will take about two months.

Meanwhile, Samuel Tiwonitaaba Kuteba, the trainer of the tigers, said the animals have been declawed and are under strict veterinary guidance.

He debunked rumours that the animals were smelly and dangerous to residents.
