Parliament may consider making committee level meeting recordings available to the public in order to avoid the distortion of facts, the Minister for Parliamentary Affairs, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu has revealed.

Speaking to the media in parliament on Wednesday, June 17, 2020, the Suame MP explained that what has necessitated this consideration is the need to curb the peddling of falsehood by committee members who seek to make political capital out of relevant issues of national interest.

He, therefore, noted that in order to address the issue of ‘distortion of facts’, instead of opening the committee level meetings to the media, the leadership of parliament will consider making available the video recordings of the committee proceedings so that the public can decipher between truth and lies.

“What perhaps going forward we may do will be to avail the recordings to you and you make your own judgement,” Mr Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu indicated.

Minority unhappy with EC’s decision to reduce centres for upcoming registration exercise

The Majority leader also jumped to the defense of the Electoral Commission following claims by the minority that the EC has decided to reduce the number of polling centers for the new voter registration exercise.

According to him, the minority presented distorted facts since nothing of that sort was discussed at the Electoral Commission’s meeting with Parliament’s Special Budget Committee.
