Mr Bagbin told MPs on the floor the matters of who is present and absent are captured in the votes of proceedings for all to see and thus does not lie in his purview.

He said he will use the opportunity to explain to the House what is absent and who is absentee MP.

The Dome Kwabenya lawmakers have come under fire by her party on grounds that her absence has caused the party’s failure in Parliament to secure majority to pass the E-levy Bill.
The 1992 Constitution, specifically Article 97, and the Standing Orders of Parliament forbids MPs from absenting from the House for 15 sitting days within a meeting
