The Majority in deems Speaker 's attack on the President for not assenting to certain private members' bills as unfortunate.

The Majority in Parliament expresses dismay over Speaker Alban Bagbin's critique of President for not assenting to certain private members' bills.

President Akufo-Addo, in a letter to Parliament, outlined his reasons, citing potential financial implications on the state's consolidated fund and a violation of Article 108 of the constitution, for not approving the Criminal Offences Amendment Bill and the Amendment Bill presented by MP Francis .

Majority Leader disagreed with the Speaker's language, stating, “If the Speaker disagrees with him, it is legitimate, and he could have ended at that. I disagree with the opinion of the president. Then maybe I also come up with my understanding of the law. But we all saw and heard the rather visceral language of the speaker. I thought it was most unfortunate. The Speaker, after reading it, goes on his own frolic and attacks the president, and I felt it was most unfortunate.”
