On the NGC party’s position, Hon. Yumkella, speaking on behalf of his colleagues emphasized that: “Our abstention is not in objection to the Speaker. Our abstention is about the process. The constitution is clear: ‘All members should be here.’ The standing Orders are clear and all members should be here. So on principle, we cannot support to validate a process that we believe is against the constitution.”

“We will not support anything that we don’t consider constitutional,” said Hon. Dr. Kandeh Yumkella.  According to him, the fact that 68 Members of the Opposition All Peoples Congress (APC) were forcibly removed from parliament by security forces is one reason they considered unconstitutional.

The NGC party parliamentarian includes Hon. Dr. Kandeh Kolleh Yumkella representing Constituency 62 (Samu Chiefdom), Hon. Foday Mario Kamara, deputy leader representing Constituency 57, Hon. Abdul Titus Kamara, Whip, of Constituency 61 and Hon. Bai Sama Kamara, deputy whip, of Constituency 60.
