NDC Reshuffles Leadership In Parliament; Ato Forson Replaces Haruna Iddrisu As Minority Leader
Information available to MyGhanaMedia.com points to a massive shake-up in the leadership of the minority in parliament.
The current leadership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) have reportedly been changed on all fronts.
According to the party, the Member of Parliament for Ajumako Enyan Essiam Constituency and also Ranking Member of the Finance Committe in parliament, Dr Cassiel Ato Forson has taken over from Haruna Iddrisu as the new Minority Leader.
Some NDC legislators who are unhappy with the situation are already describing the development as a “coup d’etat”.
Ellembelle MP, Kofi Armah Boah will replace James Klutse Avedzi as Deputy Minority Leader.
In a statement signed by NDC General Secretary Fifi Kwetey, Kwame Agbodza becomes the Chief Whip for the opposition side and will be deputised by Banda MP, Ahmed Ibrahim and Ada legislator, Comfort Doyo Ghansah respectively.
“The new leadership would be charged to recommend consequential changes in the Ranking membership to Headquarters of the party for approval,” the party statement added.
The party, however, fell short of explaining the rational behind the changes.
