The Majority Leader Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu has stated that they do not have any problem if the ad hoc committee embarks on a public sitting following the investigations into the expatriates’ payments to the Trade Ministry.
According to him, the committee should be able to define the modalities to be used for the public sitting in order to get the public satisfaction.
The Member of Parliament (MP) for Suame constituency told Starr News, “They’ll have to define for themselves. I have told the committee to define and if they want to do public sitting it’s up to them, just so the public will be satisfied’.
For transparency to prevail, the minority in Parliament is calling for a a public sitting into the matter.
