All Members of Parliament on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress, (NDC) the Party’s National, Regional and Constituency Leaders as well as all spokespersons of and for the Party are to immediately refrain from further public pronouncements on the appointment of new leaders for the Minority Caucus in Parliament and maters arising, the Party’s Council of Elders has directed.
The NDC Council of Elders said “this is a time to be circumspect in order not to play into the hands of our detractors”.
This was contained in a response from the Council of Elders to a petition it received from some aggrieved MPs who were complaining about the procedure ahead of the announcement of the new leaders.
Below is the full statement:
PRESS STATEMENT BY THE NDC COUNCIL OF ELDERS ON THE RECENT CHANGES IN NDC PARLIAMENTARY CAUCUS LEADERSHIP.
The Council of Elders of the NDC acknowledges receipt of a petition from some members of the NDC Parliamentary caucus regarding recent appointments to leadership positions.
The Council has initiated steps to act expeditiously on the petition and related matters. While this process is underway, the Council urges our Honourable Members of Parliament, Party leadership at all levels and all concerned persons to refrain from further public pronouncements on the matter in the larger interest of our great NDC. This is a time to be circumspect in order not to play into the hands of our detractors.
The Council assures the rank and file of the Party of an early and principled resolution of the issues and ultimately, the NDC will emerge stronger and more united.
We urge all members of the NDC to re-dedicate themselves to working for victory in the Presidential and Parliamentary elections in 2024, to alleviate the suffering of the Ghanaian people.
Alhaji Mahama Iddrisu
