Sack Fomena MP to join NPP in Parliament
The sacked Member of Parliament for the Fomena Constituency in the Central Region, Andrew Amoako Asiamah following the retention of his seat in Parliament on December 7 said on various platforms that he would conduct business with his former party.
According to him, his decision to join the NPP despite the internal wrangling which saw his elimination from the party was per the advice of his constituents whom he represent.
His decision to join the NPP gives the party a slim majority over its political opponent, the National Democratic Congress(NDC) in conducting business of the house but does not make him a member of caucus.
He would however, would have to resign from his current position as an independent candidate of the house, for a by election to be held, if he so wish to join the party or finish his four years tenure as an independent candidate before he could take such decision.
