The Independent Member of Parliament for the Fomena Constituency Andrew Asiamah Amoako and now the 2nd Deputy Speaker of Parliament has declared to join the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Caucus in the 8th Parliament.
In a letter written to the Speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon. Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin, the Fomena MP declared that, he, shall, for purposes of transacting business in the house associate with the NPP Caucus in the Eighth Parliament.
According to Andrew Asiamah Amoako, for the avoidance of doubt, he do hereby affim that, he shall cooperate and collaborate with the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Caucus in the Eighth Parliament.
Currently, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Parliamentary caucuses have the same number of Members of Parliament in the 8th Parliament thus; 137:137 seats with one Independent MP.
The Fomena Constituency MP who was appointed by the National Democratic Congress as the 2nd Deputy Speaker has now declared to join the NPP in the course of transacting businesses in the House.
With the equal number of seats won by the two major political parties in Parliament, it’s likely that, the New Patriotic Party may form majority since the Fomena Constituency MP Andrew Asiamah Amoako has announced to join the NPP caucus in the 8th Parliament.
