Rancorous energy debate returns today 6/21/2007
Parliament will today make a third attempt at finding solutions to the vexed subject of the nation’s energy crisis.

Debate of the energy crisis on the floor of the house on Tuesday and Wednesday have so far been characterized by rancorous cat-calls by New Patriotic Party and National Democratic Congress MPs seeking to foist blame for the national headache on each other.

So incessant was the blame game on Wednesday that Speaker Ebenezer Sekyi-Hughes had no option but to cut short the debate at a time Interior Minister Albert Kan Dapaah had indicated he was nowhere near the end of his submission as a result of the pelting.

The debate was deferred nonetheless to Thursday.

Minority Leader Alban Bagbin told Joy News he expects Thursday’s debate to be attended with decorum and hopefully, the house would have a fruitful debate.

He said the Speaker was right in curtailing the debate to maintain law and order after the too much disruption, much noise, and too much emotions.

Bagbin said the focus of the debate ideally should be on finding solutions for the future.

The Executive Director of the Centre for Democratic Development (CDD-Ghana), Professor Gyimah-Boadi told Joy News little in terms of solutions to the energy problem could be expected from Parliament if discussions so far were anything to go by.

He however expressed the hope that the house would show a new character and help the country out of the biting predicament.
