It is offensive for Minority in Parliament to endorse a candidate- Asiedu Nketia

Politics

The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress, Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketia has waded into the latest controversy over the endorsement of flagbearers for the opposition party.

Johnson Asiedu Nketia says it will be inappropriate for the Minority as an institution of Parliament to declare its support for one candidate or another.

He was quick to add however that individuals, be they in national or regional positions can take part in the wave of endorsements.

He made the comment during a press conference held in Accra on Thursday.

His comments come in the wake of a controversy over the endorsement of ex-president John Mahama by the Minority MPs.

This week, the MP for Builsa South, Clement Apaak released a list of over 96 MPs claiming to have endorsed the ex-president.

But that list has been challenged and questioned by some MPs in the house.
