Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu says the eighth Parliament will not support the vetting and approval of Ministers of State and their deputies exceeding 70 appointees.

The Tamale South MP said whoever is declared ‘winner’ for the presidency should cut and reduce the size of government drastically to protect the public purse.

Speaking to Adom News on a number of issues, the Tamale South MP insisted that a country like Ghana should not have over 120 ministers.

“Parliament should not allow any president to appoint Ministers and their deputies to exceed 70. I want it to reflect that the citizenry wants preservation of public resources and its prudent use.

“You have to provide accommodation, security and vehicles be it four wheels or salon cars, they all come at a price which can be used to take care of a pregnant woman and a sick child somewhere,” he stated.
