YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has declared his intention not to run for Parliament in the year 2020.
This decision was reached after his meeting with the Privileges Committee for his remarks passed about the house.
The MP is reported to have referred to Parliament as a useless institution, a remark, he later apologized for.
In response, the people of Assin Central stated that they need someone different to represent them in Parliament from the year 2020 onwards.
Aside Kennedy Agyapong, some MPs may be wrapping up their duties in the house for a number of reasons, as the y may never return. YEN.com.gh brings to you 5 MPs who may never return to Parliament:
1. Kennedy Agyapong – Assin Central
Kennedy Agyapong, after his remarks about Parliament, and his subsequent interrogation by the Privileges Committee, has declared that he will not contest for his seat in 2020.
2. Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin – Nadowli Kaleo
The astute lawmaker, has declared his intention to stand as flagbearer for the National Democratic Congress (NDC). This, if pursued, will render him ineligible to contest for the 2020 elections.
3. George Yaw Gyan-Baffour – Wenchi
The 67-year old lawmaker has been representing the people of Wenchi since the year 2005. In the year 2020, he will be an MP for 15 years, and it may be an opportune time to step down.
4. Inusah Fuseini – Tamale Central
Just like Kennedy Agyapong, Inusah Fuseini has declared that he will not represent the people of Tamale Central in the 2020 elections. He is no longer interested in being in Parliament.
