A member of the legal team of the opposition National Democratic Congress Abraham Amaliba has slammed minority members in parliament for failing to stage a walkout from Monday’s vetting in support of colleague, Alhassan Suhuyini.

The Tamale North lawmaker was ruled out by the chairman of the committee when he asked Mr. Boakye Agyarko to clarify the circumstances surrounding his exit from the Bank of New York, where he worked for many years and rose to become a Vice President.

The chairman considered the question offensive to the nominee and a breach of the rules of engagement at the committee.

The new lawmaker, however, could not hold his emotions and openly expressed anger over the treatment meted out to him by the chair.

Member of Parliament for Asawase has described Suhuyini’s attitude as a breach of the parliamentary rules adding that the chairman was right in overruling the MP’s question.

But speaking on Starr Midday News Tuesday, Amaliba said the minority should have boycotted the proceedings to show their anger over the treatment meted out to Suhuyini.

According to him, the treatment meted out to Suhuyini during the vetting was unfortunate and harsh.
