The Member of Parliament-elect on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for Asoikwa is alleged to be on admission to a hospital in the United Kingdom, UK.
The quest between the NPP and NDC to choose a speaker of parliament from their side has sparked a lot of tension within the political space for the past few days, however, information gathered by Awake News allegedly indicates that the NPP hands are tired and they have fallen behind the NDC in this race as K.T Hammond is seriously sick in the UK.
UK’s Prime Minister Borris Johnson announced on January, 4th, 2021 of a lockdown as they have seen a new variant of the COVID-19 pandemic. The lockdown starts effectively today, 6th, January 2021 will subsequently keep the MP in the UK.
Our source is yet to disclose the kind of illness the MP is suffering from. Meanwhile, the 7th parliament has been devolved today 6th, January 2021.
This means the NDC will have 136 and the NPP 136 will constitute the 8th parliament.
There is also an indication of the NDC boycotting their swearing-in to make president Nana Akuffo Addo’s swearing-in illegal as the constitution states in Article 93 (1) that not less than membership of 140 MPs election shall constitute a parliament.
