We can’t identify MP’s who displayed “bloody widow” placards – Parliament

The office of the Clerk of Parliament has revealed that the honourable house is yet to know the identity of the members of the opposition in Parliament who displayed the placard “bloody widow” during the swearing in of the new MP for Ayawaso West Wuogon Mrs. Lydia Alhassan.

Members from the opposition side of parliament displayed their placards to express their displeasure at the by-election held in the constituency that led to Mama Lydia winning the polls with the NDC candidate backing down.

The NDC placards, however, attracted a lot of backlash from sections of the public and on social media.

The Deputy Speaker of Parliament Joe Owusu sitting in for Prof. Mike Oquaye ordered investigations into the incident for the particular MPs to be hauled before the Privileges Committee of Parliament. This was after the Minority leadership refused to apologise for the ct.

In an astonishing claim, the Office of the Clerk of Parliament has found the footage unable to depict the MPs showing the ‘distasteful’ placards.

Supporting this claim, the Deputy Majority leader Adwoa Safo said the identification has been impossible. “Indeed they have the tape but the identification of the specific members has been a challenge”, she said.

The Dome-Kwabenya MP said Parliament will rely on videos taken by media houses during the swearing-in ceremony.
