Speaker Fumes at MPs

Speaker of ParliamentEdward Doe Adjaho has warned Members of Parliament whose actions continue to disrupt parliamentary proceedings, according to Radio XYZ.

The Speaker who was visibly angry reportedly asked MPs to conform to the orders of the House or risk getting him to exercise his punitive powers against them.

His warning followed constant disturbances in the House on Friday during a debate about whether Minority MPs, who boycotted the vetting of ministerial nominees should be allowed to ask the ministers questions on the floor of the House.

“I have been very careful not to use my powers, when you are a Speaker you have to be very careful because if I use some of my powers it can ruin the political career of some of the MPs here,” the Speaker bluntly stated.

“Let us do things in such a way that we are not forced to evoke the powers that you [MPs] have vested in me,” he warned.
