Ghana’s democracy has been shocked after armed military men stormed the country’s parliament during its dissolution on the dawn of Thursday, January 7, 2021.
The military entered the parliament due to misunderstanding between the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) during the dissolution of the 7th parliament of the 4th republic.
A chant of songs from the NDC Members of Parliament elect sent the military out of the chambers of the parliament
The incident got to do with the decision by the NPP MPs elect, to show their ballots cast for the position of the Speaker of Parliament.
The NDC said the behaviour of the NPP was constitutionalised hence would not allow that to happen.
The situation brought the vote to a standstill for almost two hours.
The voting was restarted after 4:30 am.
Shall the NDC’s Supreme Court Petition on Election 2020 overturn the Declaration?
