The Council believes all Members of Parliament who were involved in the chaos must be sanctioned accordingly.
In a statement, the lawmakers involved in the scene must also apologise to the public for their bad actions.
“They have thoroughly disgraced themselves and should apologise to the nation, be reprimanded and disciplined by their parties and the disciplinary committee of Parliament for breaching the ethics of a Member of Parliament and disrespecting the legislature,” it said.
MPs of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) clashed during the inauguration of the 8th Parliament.
This was after Tema West MP, Carlos Ahenkorah snatched uncounted ballot papers during the process to elect the Speaker of Parliament.
The NPP legislator snatched the ballot papers while counting was ongoing and attempted to run with it.
He was, however, chased by some legislators from the NDC, sparking chaos in Parliament.

However, the confusion over sitting arrangements, with NDC MPs intentionally occupying seats meant for the Majority.
All these chaos led to the military invading the Parliament’s Chamber in a bid to maintain peace.
The Peace Council said it has since invited MPs from both NPP and NDC to encourage the use of “sobriety, moderation, temperance and common sense” in Parliament.
