Minority stages walkout as Parliament approves new ministers

Parliament has approved the nominations of Herbert Krapah as the Minister of State for the Energy Ministry and Kofi Ahenkorah Marfo as the Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry.

However, the approval was one-sided as the Minority staged a walkout ahead of the vote, claiming that President Akufo-Addo’s nominations bloat the government size and increase government expenditure.

The Minority caucus had earlier boycotted the vetting of the designated ministers by the Appointments Committee over similar concerns.

The Majority Leader, Alexander Afenyo-Markin, denied claims that the government is bloating its size amid an economic crisis.
