Fight breaks out in Parliament over sitting arrangement, Military and Police called in [Watch videos]

The unthinkable has happened, as a serious scuffle or fight broke out in parliament between the minority and the majority MPs over the sitting arrangement ahead of the dissolution of the 7th Parliament of the 4th Republic.

The Members of Parliament elected from the National Democratic Congress (NDC) occupied seats on the majority side of the House.

Earlier, the NDC MPs were seen taking the names of the NPP MPs, who initially occupied that side, off the desks. But the entrance of the MPs from the ruling party saw a complication as to the original structure of the house which had been changed because their name tags had been taken off by the Minority MPs.

At about 11:20 pm (Wednesday, 6th January) personalities from both sides were seen in a standoff on the floor among Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, A.B.A Fuseini, Bryan Acheampong among others.

Prior to the heated altercation, the Ablekuma West MP had occupied her seat despite the takeover of the majority side of the aisle by the NDC.

She insisted to sit in the area despite calls by the NDC MPs for her to vacate her seat and join her colleagues at the Minority side of the house causing a melee in the process.

This is indeed a great disgrace to the entire country.
