NDC consults Council of Elders on issues in Parliament
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has urged party members to be
circumspect with their utterances in order not to play into the hands of
detractors waiting to exploit the current situation in Parliament.
This follows an emergency meeting of the Functional Executive Committee (FEC) of
the Party, on March 4, to discuss recent developments relating to the
work of the NDC Caucus in Parliament regarding the
approval of the President’s nominees for a number of ministerial positions.
NDC consults Council of Elders on issues in Parliament – A statement signed by Mr Kakra Essamuah, the Director of Communications said,
“the FEC is of the considered view that whatever the disappointments and
disagreements may be, especially from among the rank and file of
the Party, care should be taken not to allow these to degenerate into unnecessary
bickering at the expense of party discipline and cohesion.”
“We are also of the view that urgent action is required to deal with the
matter and consequently we have initiated a consultation process with the
Party’s Council of Elders in this regard. It is in our collective interest…
to address challenges facing the Caucus Leadership and the Backbench as a whole.”
It said the task would be tackled expeditiously so as to preserve the unity,
cohesion and resilience of the NDC parliamentary Caucus.
“We remain confident that the Party will emerge from this more united and focused…
as the NDC pursues its vision of a more egalitarian and inclusive Ghana,” the statement said.
