The Head of Department of Political Science at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Dr. Richard Amoako Baah says the defeat of known Members of Parliament (MPs) in the opposition New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) parliamentary primaries over the weekend will not have any adverse effect on parliament.

Twenty-three known figures including Subin MP Isaac Osei, Addai Nimo and Gifty Klenam lost their seats in the Saturday polls.

Some people have argued that their exit will affect the workings of parliament but Dr. Amoako Baah opines otherwise.

“I don’t think their exit will affect parliament that much. If parliament was that effective, our country wouldn’t be on its knees. People keep saying that parliament will lose institutional memory with the exit of these people but the truth is that everything that happens in parliament is written down so that new ones can learn from them.

“If we put that argument as a premium, then we are putting experience over democracy. How do we know that the new comer will be better than the old one?

“So does it mean that we keep those who are there forever? It doesn’t make any sense, some of the new ones will surprise us,” he stated on Morning Starr.
