The Founding Editor of the Insight Newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr., says the National Democratic Congress (NDC) business in Parliament will suffer following the outcome of its parliamentary primaries over the weekend.
Buttressing his position, Mr. Pratt stated that the party after losing about 17 incumbent MPs meant a hitch in the business they will have in Parliament.
He noted that the exit of these Members of Parliament heightened the chance of business not being taken seriously in Parliament.
“I think that the most serious thing has to do with NDC business in Parliament that obviously is going to suffer. If you have 16, 17 Members of Parliament who are no longer coming back to the house, the likelihood is that they may not take the business of the house as seriously as they would have,” he said.
The ace journalist also heightened fears about the NDC losing votes in Parliament, although the possibility of having dedicated and loyal NDC MPs is also palpable.
“There are some that I think are going to be very committed to the party, they are going to vote along party lines and be disciplined. There are some who already have started playing all kinds of games and will continue playing those games, so NDC should forget about winning anything in Parliament,” Mr. Pratt said.
Touching on the outcome of the flagbearership race, Mr. Pratt indicated that it was no shock that the Ex-President, John Mahama was going to carry the day.
However, Afigya Kwabre Northn MP, Collins Adomako Mensah, who was a panelist on the show expressed his excitement for some new faces introduced and wished them well in their business while reckoning the turnout of voters as a critical subject to consider for internal elections.
