Mohammed Mubarak Muntaka, a member of parliament for Asawase, has a group of supporters gathered outside his constituency office protesting his ouster as the Minority Chief Whip in Parliament.
The protesting party members are calling for the party to undo the changes it has made to the composition of its parliamentary leadership.
The members are dissatisfied with the announcement and they demand a reassessment.
According to Abdul Majeed Musah, a spokesperson for Mubarak Muntaka, if the decision is not reversed, the reorganization might be fatal for the party.
“Our position is very simple– that the party should reverse this decision. The entire decision is a sham and miscalculated one. People have led the party and have achieved a lot of success. It takes a wide and broad deliberation to replace any if need be.”
“So why is it that all of a sudden they have been removed? If care is not taken, it would create a lot more problems. So we want the Council of Elders to come in”.
Since there were no talks with the Minority caucus, a number of NDC MPs, notably Dominic Ayine of Bolgatanga East and Murtala Muhammed of Tamale Central, have criticized the leadership changes as being undemocratic and extremely concerning.
Cletus Avoka, the previous majority leader, has also urged the party to swiftly overturn the choice, calling it sad and unpopular.
A 24-hour deadline to reverse the decision has also been issued by certain NDC party supporters in Tamale South.
Despite criticism from its own members, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has defended the restructuring of its leadership in Parliament
