The Privileges Committee of Parliament has resolved to let the entire plenary decide what would happen to Adwoa Safo, the member of parliament for Dome Kwabenya.
The MP failed to come before the committee to provide an explanation for her absence from Parliament for more than 15 sitting days, thus the committee made the decision.
However, the committee decided by a vote of 15–12 that Kennedy Agyapong, an MP for Assin Central, and Henry Quartey, an MP for Ayawaso Central, had a valid justification and should keep their seats.
But the plenary will be given the committee’s report to study and decide whether to accept it or not.
Henry Boakye-Yiadom, a committee member and the MP for Akwatia, talked with Citi News following the private meeting.
There were 15 votes against 12 for Kennedy Agyapong and Henry Quartey, respectively.
The committee chair stated that since Awoa Safo had never come before us, we did not vote in her case.
Thus, we have chosen to deliver her to Parliament, who will decide what will happen to her.
