Anti LGBTQI+ bill: We will insist on clause by clause voting – Minority

The Minority caucus in Parliament has stated that they are resolutely opposed to the introduction, formalization and legalization of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning, intersex (LGBTQI+) practices and rights in Ghana.

Addressing a press conference in Accra Friday (October 15, 2021), the Minority Leader, Mr Haruna Iddrisu said “as representatives of the Ghanaian people, Members of Parliament have an obligation to protect the moral fibre of the Ghanaian society and promote the cohesion, unity and preserve Ghana’s time-tested cultural practices and beliefs which have kept us together as one country.”

He said members of the Minority caucus will insist on a clause by clause voting when Parliament resumes sitting on the bill for consideration.

He said members and many Ghanaians have expressed a united avowed stance to oppose the practice in “whatever shape, form or character.”

“The caucus therefore supports the Promotion of Proper Human Sexuality and Ghanaian Family Value Bill, 2021, otherwise called the anti-LGBTQQI+ Bill,” he said.

Mr Iddrisu was reacting to public debate on “anti-LGBTQQI+” Bill currently in Parliament.
