Hon. Alban Gbagbin of Nadowli kaleo has won the race to become the Speaker of Parliament elect.
This is the first time a speaker of Parliament is emerging from the minority caucus of Parliament.
This has surprised the NPP members of Parliament having been banging their hopes on the Fomena MP who is an independent member.
As of 7:20 am, the results have not been officially been declared but the reports gathered is that the NDC is jubilating because Prof. Mike Quaye’s votes were only 136.
Now, with one rejected ballot, this would mean that the NDC’s candidate, Hon. Alban Gbagbin has won with 138 votes.
The NDC MPs have since been chanting their anthems and other songs of victory.
