Restore Parliament's lost dignity


Summary short_text

Alban Bagbin has chastised Members of Parliament for the chaos that occasioned his election and the subsequent swearing-in of new elected MPs. Addressing MPs on Friday the Speaker condemned the behaviour of the Members on January 6th and 7th and urged them to take steps to restore the lost dignity and the battered reputation of the House.
The Speaker, however failed to mention if there will be a probe into the chaos which included scuffles between Members of Parliament leading to the invasion of the chamber by armed security personnel.
It is also not clear who invited the military into Parliament during the election of the Speakership position which led to a standoff between the military personnel and NDC MPs. The Speaker also admonished new MPs to behave as Honourables and not engage in acts that would mar their reputation or dent the image of Parliament.
