Member of Parliament for Fomena Constituency, Lawyer Andrews Asiamah has officially joined New Patriotic Party (NPP) caucus in Parliament.
He wrote to notify Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin of his decision on Wednesday.
“I Andrew Asiamah Amoako, an Independent Member of Parliament for Fomena Constituency, and now 2nd Deputy Speaker for same Parliament do hereby declare that I shall, for the purpose of transacting business in the house associate with the NPP Caucus in the Eighth Parliament,”
“For the avoidance of doubt, I do hereby affirm that I shall cooperate and collaborate with the NPP Caucus in the Eighth Parliament,” he concluded.
Following his dismissal from the NPP and subsequent win of the Fomena seat as an Independent Candidate, Lawyer Asiamah has been in the spotlight in recent times. At the inauguration of the 8th Parliament, Mr Asiamah was appointed 2nd Deputy Speak of Parliament.
It is believed that his decision will help decide what caucus holds the majority in Parliament.
