Parliament Rejects President’s Nominee 7/31/2007
Parliament has disapproved the nomination of Rev. Dr Akwasi Owusu-Bi as Deputy Minister of Trade, Industry, Private Sector Development and PSI. The House has also deferred until further notice the approval of Mr Ken-wuud Nuworsu as Deputy Minister of Manpower Youth and Employment and Ms. Victoria Bright as Deputy Minister at the office of the President.

The House took the decisions after the Chairman of the Appointments Committee of Parliament; Hon. Freddy Blay had moved a motion for the approval of the last 14 Ministerial nominees who were vetted by the Appointments Committee of Parliament last week.

The other 11 nominees were however approved unanimously by the House making the total number of approved nominees 23. The disapproval of Rev. Dr Akwasi Owusu-Bi’s nomination was based on inconsistent answers he provided to some questions which were asked by the Appointments Committee.

The deferment of the nominations of Mr Kenwuud Nuworsu and Ms Victoria Bright was aimed at giving the Appointments Committee more time to investigate some issues about the nominees. Hon. Fredy Blay, Chairman of the Appointments Committee described the decision of the House as an evidence of deepening democracy in the country.
