Dear GhanaWeb reader,
We are in exciting times and drama befalls our politics owing to the fact that the NDC is in charge of the legislature and the NPP continues to oversee the executive arm of government led by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
Before the former NDC MP Alban Bagbin was elected Speaker of Parliament, there was chaos in the House starting from NDC’s occupation of the majority side; holding the election hostage for hours until secrecy of the ballot was withheld; unexpected military deployment in parliament; snatching of the ballot box and papers ending in near-blows; violently unseating some MPs among other dramatic scenes.
Besides the executive and legislature, we expect more drama at the judiciary in the next 50 days and beyond as the Supreme Court is going to hear the election petition of the opposition NDC filed by former president and loser of the 2020 presidential election, John Mahama.
The Fourth Arm of Government, i.e., the media, has already assumed the role of being the official channel for political drama. 2021 will not be any different.
