The activity of the NDC MPs prompted a transitory stalemate, declining later into a close battle when Mrs. Ursula Owusu-Eufaula, NPP MP for Ablekuma West who had demanded possessing her ‘legitimate seat’ and subsequently sat among the NDC individuals, was violently shoved off her seat.
Yet, Annoh Dompreh, talking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen program on Monday, said come Friday, the NPP MPs won’t be as submissive as to be harassed again by the NDC MPs since they from the NPP, will assume control over the Majority side utilizing “any methods.”
Guarding why he thinks the NPP is the majority, Annoh Dompreh said given that the different sides have 137 seats each, and with Independent MP for Fomena, Andrew Amoako Asiamah announcing to sit with the NPP and consequently making their numbers 138, there can be not, at this point any discussion about who is in the Majority.
The NPP members, according to Annoh Dompreh, expect the NDC to come to bully their way to attempt to occupy the majority seats again, however, he and his colleagues are determined it does not happen again.
