He said the meeting underscored the importance of dialogue and collaboration between the different political factions in Parliament.

The Minority reiterated their commitment to engaging constructively with the government on matters affecting the nation.

“At the invitation of the President, the leadership of Parliament, made up of both caucuses, on Monday met with President Akufo-Addo at the presidency.”

“The meeting, which lasted for about an hour, was cordial and frank. It discussed issues of national concern.”

“The leadership of the Minority takes the opportunity to thank the President for the invitation.”

However, the Minority in Parliament has raised concerns about what they perceive to be clandestine and illegal recruitment into the security services by the government ahead of the December elections.

Dr Cassiel Ato Forson, the Minority Leader, alleged during a news conference that all NPP Parliamentary candidates have been allocated 30 slots each to select NPP loyalists and supporters to fill positions within the security services, including the police and army.

Dr Forson urged President Akufo-Addo and the government to halt what he described as undemocratic behaviour.

He emphasised the need for transparency and fairness in recruitment processes within the security sector.

He asserted that the Minority in Parliament would remain vigilant and oppose any attempts to manipulate the upcoming elections.

He reiterated the commitment of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) MPs to uphold the integrity of the electoral process and prevent any actions that could undermine democracy.
