The Minority caucus may well boycott Parliament again on Thursday as President John Mahama prepares to deliver his first state of the Nation’s Address.
If they don’t, they will attend the address but will play no role in the proceedings, sources within the Minority caucus have told Joy News’ Elton John Brobbey.
A conclusive decision is set to be made on the matter on Wednesday when the caucus meets the National Executive Council of the party.
The Minority NPP are challenging in the Supreme Court the results of the 2012 elections which declared President John Mahama winner.
They claim the victory was procured under gross election irregularity and are asking the Supreme Court to nullify the results as declared by the Electoral Commission.
Until the declaration is made the NPP MPs have refused to take part in anything that directly comes to Parliament from the President.
The boycotted the Appointments Committee sittings which vetted Ministers nominated by President John Mahama.
It is not clear if they will boycott the president’s address on Thursday.
