| December 22, 2012 | 0 Comments

The Minority in Parliament Friday morning boycotted the inauguration of the 3-member Advisory Council to assist the Presidential Transition Team.

The inauguration of the council was to take place before the house goes on break for the festive season.

The Speaker of Parliament, Joyce Bamford Addo during the inauguration said “posterity will not forgive us if we fail to establish and promote structures that will ensure sustainable peace and development”.

She added that “as members of the Advisory Council we must see this opportunity as a great challenge to prove to all Ghanaians and the International community that our democratic credentials can be equaled to other established democratic jurisdictions”.

The Vice President Amissah-Arthur who is also the Chairman of the Transition Team expressed happiness at the event and indicated that the Transition Teams commitment is to do a good job.

The MPs go on recess and will return to the house on January 3 next year.
