Parliament approves Herbert Krapa as Minister of State at Energy Ministry

Story: News Desk 

Parliament has approved Herbert Krapa as Minister of State-designate for the Energy Ministry.

This comes days after the Minority blocked a request by the Majority Leader, Alexander Afenyo-Markin to expedite his vetting and approval.

President Akufo-Addo, last week nominated the Deputy Energy Minister to be a Minister of State at the Energy Ministry after the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, selected the Energy Minister, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh as his running mate.

The Majority Leader therefore requested the House to fast-track some of the processes in place to ensure vacuum was  not created at the ministry.

However, the Minority did not agree arguing that the incumbent Energy Minister was still at post.

Today, this issue came back to the fore. Subsequently, the Appointments Committee recommended his approval.

The Minority staged a walk out in disapproval but the report was approved nonetheless.

Meanwhile, Kofi Ahenkora Marfo was also approved as Deputy Trade and Industry Minister.
