Minority boycotts vetting of Energy Ministry nominee

Source The Ghana Report

The Minority in Parliament has boycotted the vetting of Herbert Krapah, nominated as the Minister of State at the Energy Ministry.

At the Appointments Committee sitting, Deputy Minority Leader Emmanuel Armah Kofi Buah outlined reasons for the boycott.

He noted that the nomination was not published in a national newspaper, denying the public a chance to submit memoranda or make representations.

Mr Buah also questioned the need for a Minister of State when a substantive minister is already steering the affairs of the ministry.

The Minority argues that the vetting process is designed to exclude public participation and further bloat the government.

The leadership has since pledged not to participate in the vetting of any nominee that adds to what they see as the bloated size of the Akufo-Addo-Bawumia government.

They believe the process circumvents due parliamentary procedure and lacks transparency.

President Akufo-Addo nominated Mr Krapah, currently a deputy minister at the Energy Ministry, citing a heavy workload.

His nomination followed the resignation of the previous chairman, Keli Gadzekpo.
