Hon Alexander Kwamena Afenyo-Markin in the 6th Parliament of the Economic Community of West African States (EOWAS) is the third Deputy Speaker.

Having served as the leader of the Ghanaian delegation to the 5th and 6th community parliament, his rise to the 3rd deputy Speaker position doesn’t necessary come as a surprise because he has spent quite a considerable year in the community parliament; the 4th, 5th, and 6th parliaments and has garnered enough experience.

He comes as the first ECOWAS MP daring enough to host delocalized and Extraordinary Sessions in his constituency Effutu (Winneba), bringing the Community Parliament closer to the ECOWAS citizens.

He is also a member of the Bureau and the Conference of Committees Bureau.

In the 5th Legislature Hon Alexander Kwamena Afenyo-Markin served on the Committee of infrastructure as second rapporteur.
