The Minority in parliament has served notice it will no longer partake in the approval of new loans and contracts being brought to the house by the outgoing government.
According to the Minority leader, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu, their decision has been triggered by the refusal of the Mahama-led administration to serve the House with handing over notes as required by the transition act.
Addressing a news conference in Accra Thursday, the minority leader accused the outgoing NDC administration of illegally recruiting people into the public sector instead of occupying itself with the transition.
“We in the NPP minority caucus would want to register our deepest disgust at unilateral decisions being taken on how parliament approve of loans, suppliers credit agreement and project implementation agreements; the latter of which process is unknown to the rules or procedure of parliament in this period of transition.
“We regret to state that we cannot be part of processes and decisions which in our considered opinion are illegitimate. It is also instructive to note that recruitment are being made into the public service. We are aware of the agreement between the government and the IMF in respect of the net freeze in employment until 2017 excerpt in the health and education sectors,” he said.
