Meeting Details at Priviliges Committee
The Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong, has written to the Privileges Committee of Parliament to urging it to suspend its sitting after he filed a motion to have the Speaker of Parliament rescind the referral of his case to the committee.
Mr. Agyapong has been hauled before the Privileges Committee over comments, the Minority Chief Whip, Muntaka Mubarak deems contemptuous. This is the second of such motions filed by Mr. Agyapong. He filed the motion on Monday ahead of the second sitting of the committee.
The first sitting in June ended inconclusively after three MPs from the Central Region on the Committee recused themselves over possible bias.
The MPs were Gomoa Central MP, Naana Eyiah Quansah; Agona West MP, Cynthia Morrison and Upper Denkyira West MP, Samuel Nsowah-Djan.
The three have subsequently been replaced on the committee from the Majority.
The replacements are Yaw Buaben Asamoah, Adentan MP; Yaw Maama Afful, Jaman South MP; and Nana Akua Afriyie, Ablekuma North MP. The committee subsequently established a prima facie case against Mr. Agyapong, hence his appointment with the committee.
