NDC Nat’l executives to meet minority caucus over leadership reshuffle
The leadership of the National Democratic Congress is expected to meet with the Minority Caucus in Parliament on Tuesday, January 31, 2023, to settle some issues surrounding the recent reshuffle.
The leadership of the party had, this week, announced a reshuffle of the party’s parliamentary leadership.
Tension is growing in the House on the back of the changes in minority leadership.
Some 44 MPs signed a petition to reject the decision of the party. The 44 members believe the decision by the party is unfair and unpopular.
Another group of 77 MPs also reportedly signed a different petition to endorse the decision of the party.
In a statement, the newly appointed Minority Chief Whip, Kwame Agbodza revealed that, “The party leadership led by the National Chairman has agreed to meet our entire caucus on Tuesday next week, specifically on the 31st of January, 2023.”
The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has made changes to the leadership hierarchy of the Minority Caucus in Parliament.
The party has introduced three individuals considered formidable in pushing its interests to victory come December 2024 general elections.
The Ajumako-Enyan-Esiam MP Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson has taken over from Haruna Iddrisu as the new Minority Leader.
Ellembelle MP, Emmanuel Kofi Armah Buah will replace James Klutse Avedzi as Deputy Minority Leader.
Kwame Agbodza is now the Chief Whip for the opposition side and will be deputized by Banda MP, Ahmed Ibrahim, and Ada legislator, Comfort Doyo Ghansah respectively.
According to the leadership of the NDC, the changes have nothing to do with the individual performances of the MPs but rather a response to the changes in the political arena.
