The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has defended the choice it made to reshuffle its parliamentary leadership.
People who needed to be consulted, according to the party, were properly engaged.
The Party’s general secretary, Fifi Fiavi Kwetey, stated that the choice is appropriate and best serves group interests rather than personal ones.
He said that John Dramani Mahama, a former president, was consulted and that his opinions were properly considered.
“This decision was taken after wide consultation. If you look at the apex leadership of the party, that consultation was done. In terms of parliamentary, the group that is widely consulted, that consultation has been done.”
“What needed to be done about this reshuffling was done and the people duly consulted. All the key leaders have been consulted.
Former President Mahama was consulted, and his opinions were properly taken into account.
He stated in an interview with Citi FM on Tuesday that both the new and old leaders had been informed and consulted.
The NDC’s present parliamentary leadership has undergone extensive transition.
As the new Minority Leader, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson has replaced Haruna Iddrisu, according to the party.
Kofi Armah Boah, an Ellembelle MP, will take over for James Klutse Avedzi as the Deputy Minority Leader.
