The Minority Leader of the 5th Parliament, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu is likely to be toppled by some members of the Minority caucus in the 6th Parliament who are yet to be sworn in.
According to Citi News’
Parliamentary correspondent, Richard Sky, the leadership of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) are currently in a meeting “to take a clear decision everybody within the party leadership and of course those in Parliament will rally around.”
Richard Sky reported that the leadership of the Minority caucus of the 5th Parliament are facing stiff competition from “other people who are very much interested in the seat on which the Honourable Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu sits as the Minority leader in Parliament.”
“Again some people from the Minority caucus are pushing very hard to get some other people to topple the Suame Member of Parliament who has been in Parliament since 1996,” he added.
The Deputy Minority leader, Ambrose Dery will be absent in the next Parliament after he was defeated by the Attorney General and Minster for Justice, Benjamin Kumbour and so his replacement will be determined at the meeting.
“There is also speculation that the Honourable Fred Opare Ansah may also face possible competition for his retention as the Minority Chief Whip in Parliament, he said.
