From Now On, All Voting In Parliament Should Be Public, Not Only Anti-LGBTQ+ Bill – CDD Boss



Executive Director of the Ghana Centre for Democratic Development (CDD-Ghana), Professor Henry Kwasi Prempeh has told the Speaker of Parliament to ensure all voting done in Parliament henceforth are made public.

He was reacting to Mr Alban Bagbin’s declaration that the voting on the anti-LGBTQ+ bill will be made public.

According to H.K Prempeh, the anti-gay bill is nothing special to receive that kind of votes noting that if that is the case, all votes going forward must be done publicly.

“Not only is this a bill driven by a lot of populists, now you want to use populist means to rush it through parliament,” he said on TV3’s the Key Points.

“There is no reason why this bill should get any special treatment from the speaker of from any member or parliament. In principle, I’m in favour of  members of Parliament , the votes that they cast on all matters to be known  because if you are a representative  of a constituency  you represent us in Parliament , that is the principle  then we must know how you are representing us.

 “It has to apply to everything. There shouldn’t be special rules or special dispensation made for this bill, it doesn’t deserve it , there is no reason why  it should be given that kind of dispensation.”
