Majority Leader, Alexander Kwamena Afenyo-Markin on Thursday evening, June 27, 2024, just after adjournment admonished his colleagues in the Majority to respect the party’s structure and understand the times in which they are ahead of December 7, 2024, Presidential and Parliamentary elections.

“We should be very mindful of how we express certain views in the public space; yes we have all heard matters regarding running mate of the NPP to complement our ticket, but no decision has been made yet and the party structures are there”.

“So, I will want to encourage colleague members of parliament and that we are in this together. There is no perfect person in this world and perfect character in this world. Again, none of us can tick every box, let us be careful how we say things about each other and how we approach things, the language we use it may not be helpful”, he emphasized.

The Majority Leader’s admonishment follows a comment by a member of the Majority Caucus, Andy Appiah Kubi that the flagbearer of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia needs a running mate who will help the flagbearer and not one that will lead him, when the name of Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh popped up in the media space as likely running mate of the NPP.

In a quick press briefing, the leader noted that colleagues on the Majority side should be measured in their language and should have confidence in the party, “and I believe we would use the structures of the party to come out with certain decisions.”

In addition, let us wait and respect the leadership of the party. We should not go out of our way to denigrate ourselves; we should not go out of our way to describe each other in a way that would be unacceptable, he affirmed.
