Chairman of Parliament’s Transport Committee, Theophilus Tetteh Chaie, is worried about the recent public pronouncements of some members of the nation’s legislature.

According to him, such unguarded outbursts contribute to eroding the people’s confidence in the leadership and members of the nation’s legislature.
“In one breath you want the general public, the citizenry to extend some courtesy, respect to us, but why don’t we do the same thing to our fellow human beings?” he quizzed.

The Member of Parliament (MP) Ablekuma Central Constituency disclosed this to Joynews when reacting to the comment made by the MP for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyepong in which he allegedly accused the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Charlotte Osei, of trading sex for the job.

The controversial New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP has received severe criticisms from right groups and civil society organisations for disrespecting womanhood throughout last week.

Some individuals have urged the leadership of Parliament to initiative punitive measures against the MP.
Backing calls by some of his colleagues to have the MP brought to book; Mr Tetteh Chaie could not comprehend how a member of such an honourable House will treat an official of the country with disdain.

He blamed the absence of the code of conduct for what appears to be the unregulated behaviour of some members of the House.
He explained a committee set up by the speaker last year to come up with a code are yet to present the draft report for consideration and report.
“I know currently code of conduct is being developed. It has not been passed yet so let’s wait and see,” he said.

Believing the current behaviour of MPs needs to curtail, the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) MP said: “I believe something needs to be done because as members of parliament we can’t continue to be going the way some of our members are going about things.”

When asked why the code of conduct is delaying, he said: “This is something that is going through a lot of processes.”
“It has to be fine-tuned but I believe before the sitting ends, the leadership of the House will present it for approval,” he added.
Meanwhile chairman of the committee working on the code of conduct, Nana Amoako, says the document requires some legal backing before it can be laid in parliament.
