Majority shakes up leadership in parliament, reassigns Kwaku Kwarteng to speak on economy

The Majority Leader, Alexander Afenyo-Markin, has announced a shake-up of the majority leadership in parliament. As part of this, Obuasi West MP Kwaku Kwarteng, has been removed as Chairman of the Finance Committee.

According to JoyNews’ Parliamentary Correspondent Kwaku Asante, Mr Kwarteng will now become the Majority Spokesperson/Chairman of the Economy Committee.

In the new standing orders, there’s an Economy Committee, as a standalone committee from the Finance Committee but with very little power compared to the Finance Committee.

The Majority Leader made the announcement surprisingly on the floor of Parliament on Friday, June 28, to the disappointment of some Majority MPs.

Interestingly, this was the only change Afenyo-Markin announced. It is expected that other changes would be made public in the subsequent days.

More soon…
