There are indications that the president Nana Akufo-Addo will in the coming days have a meeting with the Majority Caucus is parliament to discuss issues on the a possible changes in the leadership of the caucus.

Though the majority caucus at a press conference on Tuesday, February 20, 2024 rebuts all speculations about changes in their leadership and any contemplation to that effects, there is an evidence to the contrary as the party at one of their executive meetings had ‘changes to Parliamentary leadership as one of the items on the agenda for discussion which was subsequently skipped.

Mr Appiah Kubi, the Member of Parliament for Asante Akim South, speaking on TV3’s Ghana Tonight Show on Tuesday, February 20, 2024 confirmed attending such meeting by the party and seeing the said item on the agenda specifically as the fifth item for discussion but was dropped subsequently.

He, however, assured that the new Standing Orders of Parliament which came into force in January this year gave power to the caucuses/groups to constitute their own leadership, a position that is a departure from the previous system which allowed the party to do so.

As such, he said they are satisfied with their leadership and are solidly behind them, adding that whatever anybody or groups will put forward to be done to the Majority Caucus’ leadership would be treated as a suggestion to be tabled before the caucus for discussion.
