Deputy Leader of the Opposition Party in the Eight Parliament, James Kluste Avedzi has given indications that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) caucus would in the coming months form the proper Majority party in the House.

According to him, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Seventh Parliament dropped from one sixty-nine (169) to one hundred and thirty-seven and would go further down after the cases his party has in court are determined.

“They are struggling to find comfort with one independent MP and they were jubilating after the ruling of the Speaker on Friday, January 15, 2021. They are not the Majority party in Parliament, explain this to the public. We are taking Techiman South and two other constituencies back in a few months to come, we would form the proper Majority”.

He made this remarks just after the Deputy Majority group Leader, Afenyo Markin addressed the media on the ruling of the Speaker Rt Hon. Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin to clear the air on the ambiguity of Majority and Minority caucus.
Dr. Avedzi noted that at best their side can be described as the Opposition side since they are not in government, but it is just

a matter of time, and the Leader of the NPP side can best be described as Leader of government Business.

“What is not there should not be put there, the Speaker avoided addressing the two Leaders either by Majority or Minority”, he emphasized.
