Members of Ghana’s Parliament were unable to contain their emotions as they brawled in the House on Monday evening, shortly before the final vote on the contentious Electronic Transfer Levy Bill, often known as e-levy.
Joseph Osei-Owusu who sat in as the Speaker stated that the Bill which had been tabled under a certificate of urgency would be approved by a division and that he would vote in his capacity as a Member of Parliament.
Members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) appeared to be enraged by this, questioning his decision to vote after presiding over the night’s proceedings.
They made their way to the front of the dais, threatening the Bekwai MP.
This sparked unrest among the Majority MPs, and when Mr Osei-Owusu gave the presiding function to the Second Deputy Speaker, Andrew Amoako Asiamah, a fight ensued.
