The opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) says it is considering boycotting Parliamentary proceedings concerning the creation of the 45 new constituencies.

The House returns from a brief recess on 3rd September towards ensuring the 21 days need for the Constitutional Instrument covering the new constituencies to mature is fulfilled.

But Party Chairman Jake Obetsebi Lamptey in an interview with XYZ News said the party may impress on its MPs to boycott the sitting so that they can focus on participating in the public scrutiny of the biometric voter’s register which will be opened to the public for 10 days starting Saturday September 1.

Mr. Obetsebi-Lamptey said “the exhibition is supposed to start tomorrow; we want them to be there during the course of the exhibition so that nobody comes afterwards to challenge and take the matter to court.

“The exhibition is ten days after the ten days then all the challenges that arose will be addressed at the district level and the MPs will have to be there.

“So if an MP is in Paga, you want the MP to be in Paga and Accra as well it is not possible…so [boycotting] is something that we must consider”.
