The National Executives of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) are in a meeting today with their Members of Parliament (MPs) following the change in the party’s leadership in the lawmaking house.
The meeting was earlier slated for January 31, 2023, but could not come off following an intervention by the Council of Elders of the party.
The party later rescheduled the meeting to today, Monday, February 6, 2023, in Parliament.
The meeting comes after the resistance that greeted the reshuffle of the leadership of the Minority which saw Haruna Iddrisu removed as Minority leader and replaced with Dr Cassiel Ato-Forson.
As part of the leadership changes, Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah, MP for Ellembelle replaced Ketu North MP, James Klutse Avedzi as the Deputy Minority Leader while Kwame Governs Agbodza replaced Asawase MP, Muntaka Mubarak as the Minority Chief Whip.
National Chairman of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, said the party is not fragmented despite the uproar that greeted the changes they made in their leadership in Parliament.
According to him, the NDC is still united.
He added that the changes have been welcomed by the majority of the NDC members.
Some MPs signed a petition to reject the decision of the party over lack of consultation.
Another set of MPs also petitioned the leadership of the NDC to ignore calls for the reshuffling to be reversed.
