The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Members of Parliament (MPs) were in a state of bliss as Speaker Alban Bagbin rules that the NPP and the Independent candidate form the Majority group in Parliament.

This afternoon, the NPP caucus, who were already confident of the victory, chanted loud jubilations which brought the first session of the 8th parliament to a quick halt.
