The National Democratic Congress (NDC) will engage members of the minority caucus on January 31, 2023, according to Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson, the minority leader in parliament, to discuss the group’s unresolved issues.
Following a change in the group’s leadership by the national executives of the National Democratic Congress NDC, there has been discord among its members.
Speaking to the press following a meeting with NDC leadership, Minority Leader Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson promised to work with the former caucus leaders to carry out their parliamentary mission.
“We just finished a really productive meeting with the party leadership.
In order to fulfill our mandate, we will.
“And starting today, a number of activities will be carried out, as has been agreed upon with the party leadership.
On Tuesday, we will hold our first meeting with our leadership and the party leadership, he continued.
Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson was earlier this week’s Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu’s replacement by the NDC.
As the Deputy Minority Leader and Minority Chief Whip, respectively, Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah, MP for Ellembelle, took over for James Klutse Avedzi, MP for Ketu North. Kwame Governs Agbodza, MP for Asawase, took over for Muntaka Mubarak, MP for Asawase.
Several NDC MPs, including Dominic Ayine, the MP for Bolgatanga East, and Murtala Muhammed, the MP for Tamale Central, later criticized the leadership changes as extremely unsettling and undemocratic, claiming they were not consulted before the transition.
A petition to protest the party’s decision was signed by 44 MPs.
The party’s choice, in the opinion of the 44 members, is unfair and unpopular.
However, it is also believed that 77 MPs signed a different petition endorsing the party’s choice.
