Former Majority Leader, Abraham Osei-Aidoo has lauded the creation of the Ministry of Leader of Government Business, describing it as a catalyst for effective execution of government policies.

Mr. Osei-Aidoo said the Ministry will also help foster proper coordination between the legislature and the executive.

Lawyer Abraham Osei Aidoo, described the decision as good and, is in line with democratic standards in advanced democracies.

The former Tema West NPP Member of Parliament was reacting to claims by Dr. Ransford Gyampo, a lecturer at the University of Ghana to the effect that, that the Ministry of Leader Government Business, could be used as a tool by government to control or influence parliament.

Dr. Ransford Gyampo, while speaking on Adom FM, described creation of the Ministry as unnecessary. He said Majority Leaders have always championed the cause of the governments in power.

However, Mr. Osei-Aidoo, who is also the former MP for Tema West said no Majority Leader worth his or her salt, would not allow himself or herself to be controlled with or without the creation of a Ministry.

He said without the creation of the Ministry of Leader of Government Business, the rules of parliament would need to be amended to allow the Majority Leader to preside over government business, unlike the present norm where government business is introduced in the House by the various sector ministers.
