1 min read

The Independent Member of Parliament for Fomena who is also the 2nd Deputy Speaker, Andrew Asiamah Amoako, has officially written to the Speaker of Parliament, Rt Hon. Alban Bagbin informing him about his decision to associate himself with the New Patriotic Party (NPP) caucus in Parliament.

This means, the NPP is most likely to form the Majority in Parliament pending the results of the series of court actions the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has initiated against some Parliamentary seats which were won by the NPP in the December 7 2020 elections.

At the moment, both the NPP and the NDC have 137 seats each but the the Independent MP’s decision to join the governing party will bring the difference to one.

The Fomena Lawmaker’s letter to the Speaker dated 13th January 2021, said “I Andrew Asiamah, an Independent Member of Parliament for Fomena Constituency  and now the 2nd Deputy Speaker for same Parliament  do hereby declare that , I shall, for  purposes of transacting business in the House associate myself  with the NPP caucus  in the Eight Parliament .

“For the avoidance of doubt, I do hereby affirm that I shall cooperate and collaborate with the NPP Caucus in the Eight Parliament.”
