The NPP caucus in Parliament, today, 15th January 2020, entered the chamber of Parliament as early as 4 am to Occupy the right side of the Speaker.
By convention, the right side of the Speaker is designated for the side with the majority of seats.
It will be recalled that during the inauguration of the 8th Parliament last week, the NDC caucus pulled a surprise on their counterparts by entering the Chamber early to occupy the right side of the Speaker.
The NDC, then claimed that they have equal seats with the NPP and therefore could choose to sit anywhere they wanted to.
However, today, it appears the NPP caucus is also eager to get one over their counterparts, entering the Chamber as early as 4am just to occupy the right side of the Speaker.
It is unclear if today’s sitting will also be fraught with drama like the last sitting.
