The leader of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) caucus in Parliament, Haruna Iddrisu has said the NDC MPs will have no issue sitting on the left side of the speaker in Parliament.

According to Haruna Iddrisu, the NDC lawmakers will only occupy the minority seats as long as their numerical strength will be respected in the composition of committees and in determination of leadership committees.

“Let me assure the Ghanaian people that the NDC 137 MPs have no difficulty sitting to the left of the Speaker so long as our numerical strength is respected and respected in the composition of committees and in the determination of leadership of committees, whilst we continue to pursue legitimate legal and constitutional processes to procure what we deserve as a majority party, someone will say, what is on the left or what is on the right, we have no difficulty at all,” Mr Iddrisu said at a press briefing in Parliament on Thursday afternoon [Jan 14, 2021].

“But we think that given what we’ve shared with you, guided by apt constitutional provisions, and evidenced by the fact that the Fomena MP is not joining the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and cannot join the New Patriotic Party by the constitutional framework…” Mr Iddrisu added.
