The Majority Leader and Member of Parliament for the Suame constituency in the Ashanti region, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, has officially stepped down from his role as the leader of the majority caucus in Parliament.

According to A1 Radio sources related to the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) hierarchy, his decision was revealed at a crucial meeting of the majority group in Parliament on Wednesday evening.

This special meeting took place at the Jubilee House’s banquet hall in Accra, with President Nana Akufo-Addo and some members of both the executive and legislature present.

The Deputy Majority Leader and Member of Parliament for Efutu in the Central Region, Alexander Afenyo-Markin, will assume the leadership position.

This leadership change comes in the wake of the Speaker of Parliament, Alban SK Bagbin’s comments, which insisted that the parties with representation in Parliament have a big say in appointing the leadership of their caucuses.

“If, as a new house, you barely even know each other, and then you are asked to go and appoint your leader without your party, how are you going to do it? A party that has given you the platform to come to this house. You come on the ticket of the party, and to appoint your leader, the party must lead that process. I don’t know how you can do it without the party,” he insisted.
