Majority Leader, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu, has called for reconciliation in Parliament after the minority threatened to boycott the inauguration of President Akufo-Addo.
Akufo-Addo will be inaugurated for a second term after winning the presidential race in the just-ended general elections.
He polled over 51percent of the total valid votes cast to beat his main contender, former President John Dramani Mahama of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Meanwhile, Mahama rejected the outcome of the elections.
Speaking on the floor of Parliament on Tuesday, December 22, 2020, Mensah Bonsu, who is also, the Parliamentary Affairs Minister entreated his Minority colleagues to come on-board for the development of the country.
He further urged that they use Christmas to resolve all the post-election disputes before the eighth parliament comes into session.
“I do know that post-election have been so many issues “Let’s use this as a nation, the Christmas period as a nation to reconcile and come back much more united to pursue the course of God and country,” the Suame MP said.
Before the seventh parliament dissolves at midnight of January 6, 2021, Akufo-Addo must deliver his final State of the Nation Address per Article 67 of the 1992 Constitution.
