Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bgabin has said he does not expect both the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to like him in the performance of his duty as speaker.

Mr. Bagbin said he remains impartial as Speaker but that does not mean he is neutral. He said he cannot be neutral because he has an interest.

“Through out my practice I have never ben a fanatic of party politics,” he told the Council of State members in a meeting.

He added ” I have always preached across the the political divide. I have very good friends from the other side and that is how come I won

“I couldn’t have won without the support of members from the (NPP) and so you will hear me say that at the end of the day, I don’t expect either party to praise me.

“You also heard me say that in the performance of my functions, I will be impartial, but I will not be neutral. This is what I learned from my farther the late Rt Honorable Peter Ala Adjetey.

“He said in a ruling which is in the hansard. So, any matter that comes before the House I cannot be neutral because I have an interest in it but in performing my duty as speaker I will be impartial.
