Any legislative representatives who have tested positive for covid-19 are also showing up for work that is endangering others’ lives.
The House has therefore warned that if the development continues, these MPs will have their names written.
Furthermore, First Deputy Speaker Joseph Osei-Owusu, who chaired the House on Wednesday, urged more than 50 MPs who are still undergoing the training exercise to do so before the end of the day in order not to face sanctions.
Muntaka Mubarak, the majority whip, blamed the development on the health directorate’s failure to disclose the identity of the positive Covid-19 MPs to the leadership of
of both sides.
According to him, the move could enable leaders of both sides to ensure such members stay away from the precinct of parliament.
Majority leader Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu also warned names of such recalcitrant MPs will be made public by next week if they fail to adhere to the directives of the speaker.
