Deputy Speaker Of Parliament Must Be Countered As A Member Of Parliament”-Lawyer Moses Foh Amoaning

Legal practitioner and sports enthusiast, Moses Foh Amoaning posits that the deputy speaker of Parliaments must be counted as a member of the parliament.

According to Moses Foh Amoaning, people have to understand the way the constitution is structured pointing to the fact that a member of Parliament is voted for to represent his people so he can never lose his capacity to be numbered amongst that number in terms of the parliamentarians.

On Good Evening Ghana shows hosted by Paul Adom Otchere, seasoned law lecturer, Moses Foh Amoaning about his interpretation of the problems in parliament relating to whether or not the deputy speaker can vote when he is presiding.

Reacting to this a Facebook user knowns as Dennis Adusah wrote; “Absolutely, but really the people of SALL have been unduly being disadvantaged. Can we not organise an election to get them a representation in Parliament??. It means nobody is speaking for them and by inference do not qualify to be Ghanaians. I think the government must as a matter of urgency address this gap”

Another user known as James Neequate wrote; “

I am not surprise about such senseless stand. Yes an mp is voted for to represent his people and vote as need be. But he is also aware of the the rights and liabilities of accepting a position as a deputy speaker. How can you eat your cake and have. Looks like deception is the new meaning of Moses
