Kenedy Agyapong Should be Suspended – Privileges Committee Finally Recommends

The Privileges Committee of Parliament has recommended sanctions against the Assin Central Member of Parliament Kennedy Agyapong over his claims that Parliament is cheap.

The committee in its report after the public hearing of the member last week said: “ The committee has carefully considered the matter in the light of the totality of the evidence gathered and in accordance with the provisions of the constitution, the standing orders and other relevant enactment, and concluded that the honourable member for Assin Central constituency Mr. Ken Ohene Agyapong is indeed in contempt of Parliament for the remarks he made that “Parliament is cheap” and “ Parliament is useless”.

“Accordingly, the committee recommends to the House to adopt its report and sanction honourable Ken Ohene Agyapong by suspending him for the rest of this session or reprimand him”.

The proposed sanctions by the committee come despite Mr. Agyepong’s denial that he called the House “useless” when he appeared for them.
