It was learnt that the fight was between NPP and NDC members which centered on who takes the majority side in the parliament and who also produces the next Speaker of Parliament.

In a Joy News interview, Kwabena Mintah Akandoh, the MP-elect for Juaboso whose lap, Mrs. Ursula was seen sitting explained the situation.

“When the New Patriotic Party MPs came in, they saw that we were on the right side so they went to the left but Ursula refused. Cletus Avoka was sitting down and decided to go to the washroom, by the time he came back Ursula had taken his seat. We tried to persuade her but she declined. She also left the seat and I sat on it. When she came she just sat on my lap. She didn’t say anything to me, she just sat and I didn’t say anything,” he said.
