Speaker of Ghana’s Parliament, Professor Mike Oquaye, has urged Members of Parliament to refrain from excessive partisan debates in the run-up to the 2020 presidential and parliamentary elections.
The Speaker, addressing members of the House at the commencement of the Fourth and final session of the 7th Parliament, said he had observed that a number of allegations made against colleague Members of Parliament were politically inclined and not in any way related to their mandate as members of the House.
He urged members of the House to refrain from excessive politicisation of issues which often tend to create disaffection among members.
