The Minority in Parliament has explained the reason behind their walkout during the 2020 State of the Nation Address (SONA).
The Minority in a press conference said they walked out to show President Akufo-Addo that if he is insensitive to the issues affecting Ghanaians they can equally be insensitive to his State of the Nation Address.
The presser was chaired by the Minority leader Haruna Iddrisu saw the Minority give several reasons for the walkout.
They said their views and inputs into matters affecting the nation are often shelved by the Majority and that is not helping democracy in the country.
One major reason they gave was that the President does not listen to their views and opinion concerning the plans to compile a new Voters Register.
They then said Ghana's democracy is under threat and President Akufo-Addo is the one hindering the progress of this important factor.
The Majority who are agitated by this walkout says the Minority demonstrated bad faith by welcoming the President and other dignitaries but later walked out.
The Minority leader responding to that said in 2013 the NPP boycotted President Mahama's SONA among others and that set a bad precedent.
He also revealed that what they did is not against the rules governing parliamentary proceedings.
Mr. Iddrissu ended by saying that they will decide whether to participate in the SONA debate in parliament if that is opened up for discussion later.
