Joe Osei Wusu, the member of parliament for the Bekwai constituency has confirmed his appointment as the first deputy speaker of parliament.
Mr Osei Wusu while confident that that he is 'capable' to fit into his position as the new parliament is nearing inauguration, he stated in an interview with Joy FM that, "I have not psyched myself up to it.”
On the other hand, the National Council for the incoming New Patriotic Party administration has approved the nomination of Osei Kyei Bonsu, the current minority leader to the position of Majority leader, and will be assisted by the member of parliament for Dome-Kwabenya, Adwoa Sarfo.
Remarking on her appointment, Adowa Sarfo said, “It’s going to be a large majority on our part… I’m conversant with the rules of the House. I believe that as a young woman for starters … my team is going to be very supportive and there will be a lot of team playing, humility and honesty. I will make sure government business is done so effectively. I will be approachable and be able to lobby on the other side to get a consensus when need be."
She said that she was truly humbled by her appointment, and commended her party for rewarding hard work. She also noted that as a woman taking up such a position in this time, the feeling was "humbling".
Meanwhile, Haruna Iddrisu, the member of parliament for Tamale South has been appointed as the Minority leader.
