Quality of debates in Ghana’s Parliament disappointing – Palmer-Buckle

Most Reverend Charles Gabriel Palmer- Buckle

The Metropolitan Archbishop of Accra, Most Reverend Charles Gabriel Palmer- Buckle, has expressed regret over the quality of debates that go on in Ghana’s Parliament.

According to him, the low level and overly partisan nature of parliamentary debates makes one wonder the need in voting during elections.

‘The quality of discussion that goes in parliament is not worth my voting for anybody. Once or twice I had had to ask somebody; is that the reason why we vote you there?

‘We want you to go there and promise us that you are moving the nation forward instead of these political equalization that goes on there,’ the priest stated at an event in Accra Thursday.

He cited the specific case of the parliamentary discussion on the Nayele cocaine scandal that rocked the nation some months ago as one of the most disappointing. He said the nature of deliberations that are held in parliament appear as though the MPs are more interested in politics than addressing the substantive challenges that confront the nation.
