New Minority Leadership, NDC Executives To Hold Meeting

The newly appointed Parliamentary leadership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) will today hold a meeting with their party executives.

This was communicated in a notice to the NDC legislators on Wednesday.


The NDC in a letter to the Speaker of Parliament earlier this week informed him about changes in its Parliamentary leadership.


The changes affected Haruna Iddrisu, James Klutse Avedzi, Deputy Minority Leader and Mohammed-Mubarak Muntaka, Minority Chief Whip.


The Member of Parliament for Ajumako-Enyan-Essiam Constituency, Cassiel Ato Forson now replaces Haruna Iddrisu as Minority leader. He will be assisted by Kofi Armah Buah as the Deputy Minority Leader.


Meanwhile, Kwame Agboza will replace Muntaka Mubarak as the Chief Whip.


Ibrahim Ahmed, the First Deputy Minority Whip and Hon Comfort Doyoe Cudjoe, the Second Deputy Minority Whip, have been retained.

According to the General Secretary of the party, Fiifi Fiavi Kwetey, the changes in the Party’s Parliamentary leadership are meant to position the party for the 2024 Elections.


The NDC has been divided by the development with many expressing surprise and displeasure.

On Wednesday, some 60 MPs reportedly signed a petition to protest the changes while 77 others reportedly signed a different petition to support it.

The meeting scheduled for today, January 26 comes after the new Parliamentary leaders held a meeting with the former Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu on Wednesday, January 25, the notice disclosed.


Meanwhile the notice said the party leadership has agreed to meet the entire NDC Caucus at the end of January.

“That the party leadership led by the National Chairman have agreed to meet our entire caucus on Tuesday next week, specifically on the 31st of January, 2023. That based on the foregoing those calling for a meeting tomorrow should suspend their plans and await Tuesday’s meeting”, the notice signed by the new Chief Whip, Kwame Agboza said.
