The National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress, Asiedu Nketiah has explained the reason for the change in the leadership of the Party in Parliament.

Speaking on Starrfm’s mid day news, Mr. Asiedu Nketiah stated that the changes made in the leadership of Parliament is part of the party’s reorganization process.

“It is the continuation of our re-organization exercise to reposition the party for the 2024 elections. So, it’s the continuation of the process which was started a year earlier from branches through to constituency to regional and national. We’ve now come to the reorganization on the form in parliament.”


“The thinking is that going into 2024 the debate is going to be principally on the economy and so we need to put our best foot forward so we can match the NPP in that area. That’s why we chose Ato Forson to lead the charge as Minority leader and then Armah Kofi Boah our expert in energy which is also going to feature prominently and then Kwame Agbodza is our person on infrastructure,” he told Starr FM Midday News with Naa Dedei Tettey on January 24, 2023 Tuesday.


He continued: “The party will continue to move forward with our proposal in revamping the economy and hoping to attract the attention of the nation that we offer a better alternative to what we are seeing in the government now. So, the battle will continue except that the key players have changed position. So, we are not going to relent on making NDC the better alternative.”


The National Democratic Congress has removed Harruna iddrisu as the Minority Leader he has been replaced with Ajumako-Enyan-Essiam lawmaker Dr Cassiel Ato Forson.
