“Therefore, continuously changing members of parliament through primaries weakens the house and will not allow members to fully execute their responsibilities since most of them would not have the experience required to be effective parliamentarians,” he said.

Ministries not classrooms
According to the minority leader, it was interesting to note that people were appointed to ministries as substantive ministers or deputies, and “appear before the vetting committee with absolutely no knowledge about the ministries they are heading to.”

According to the minority leader, the popular responses were that, “we will learn when we get there,” but the facts still remained that the ministries were not schools for the new appointees to go and learn.

“My problem is how can we have a Parliament approving these people who are now going to learn when they get to the ministries?” he asked.

Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu said the time had come to start offering appointments to people who had considerable experience related to the ministry they were being appointed to.

“Ministers are supposed to effectively and efficiently help the President, so people without expertise cannot be sent to the ministries to go and start learning,” he added.

The visibly worried minority leader hinted that a motion would soon be filed on the floor of Parliament that would seek to amend the standing orders of Parliament to give power to it to rescind the appointment of a minister since the house had the primary responsibility to appoint ministers,” he said.

“We can censure ministers, but since Parliament makes the appointments, it should also have the power to reverse them when it deems it fit,” he added.

Assurance C’ttee
The Chairman of the GAC, Mr Emmanuel Bedzrah, said the new electronic platform would involve the citizenry to check the ministers and ensure that they delivered on their promises, adding: “We have to ensure accountability from the government and make certain that every promise from a minister of state is monitored.”

The government assurance committee was to amplify community voices, generate awareness and demand accountability from authorities.

The committee is a Standing Committee in Parliament created by the Standing Orders in 1998 to exercise oversight responsibility over the Executive.
