AKUAPIM N: MPs need offices in their constituencies – Dan Botwe
|Hon. Dan Botwe|| |
The Member for Parliament for Okere Constituency, Hon. Dan Botwe has called for the provision of office accommodation as well as research assistants for MPs in their various constituencies in the country.
According to him, some MPs travel long distances when visiting their constituencies and sometimes it becomes difficult for them getting first hand information of problems confronting them in order to channel such grievances to Parliament.
He said sometimes it is difficult for them frequenting their constituencies amidst the influx of pressing bills and issues on the Floor of Parliament arguing that such research assistants would be in the right position to provide them with adequate information in the constituencies.
He revealed that some MPs resort to party members for information saying that, it was not the best practice.
Hon. Dan Botwe who was speaking on Ephson’s file on Radio XYZ today July 12, 2012 proposed that at least two (2) research assistants should be provided them in such offices for accelerated development.
Although he could not give details of where such support should come from, Hon. Dan Botwe believed that it would help them be on top of issues in their constituencies.
