MPs shouted at each other and engaged in an open brawl in Parliament on Monday evening (20 December) as the First Deputy Speaker, Joseph Osei-Owusu, vacated his seat to enable him also to cast a vote to pass the controversial E-Levy under a certificate of urgency.




The Minority contended that, under the standing orders of Parliament, Osei-Owusu, who was presiding yesterday, could not vote. However, the sit-in Speaker insisted that he had the right to vote and would do so.

The free-for-all ensued on the Speaker’s platform as Minority MPs attempted to seize his chair as he made his way out of the chamber in order for the Second Deputy Speaker, Andrews Amoako Asiamah, to take over.


The marshals had a tough time restoring order in the House as they wrestled with a group of MPs to protect the Speaker’s seat, his documents and the mace.

Eventually, Second Deputy Speaker Asiamah returned to the seat to adjourn sitting to Tuesday (21 December).
