The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) on Friday inaugurated an 11-member Constitution Review Committee to study the party’s constitution to carry out any possible review.
The committee, to be chaired by the Deputy Majority Leader and Member of Parliament (MP) for the Efutu Constituency, Hon. Alexander Afenyo Markin, is to undertake a review of the governing party’s constitution based on amendment proposals received from some members.
General Secretary of the NPP, John Boadu, after swearing-in the members of the committee, outlined its mandate as including:
“Compiling all the proposals for amendment into a single document for onward circulation to every regional and constituency office through the office of the General Secretary ahead of the party’s National Annual Delegates Conference in line with Article 19 of the NPP constitution.
The committee will also be required to incorporate all the amendment proposals and motions that will eventually be adopted by the National Annual Delegates Conference into a new document, which then becomes the revised constitution of the party.
The members of the committee include the following;
1. Lawyer Alexander Afenyo Markin (Hon.) – Chair
2. Lawyer O. B. Amoah (Hon.)
3. Lawyer Joseph Dindiok Kpemka
4. Lawyer Henry Kokofu
5. Lawyer Joyce Opoku Boateng
6. Lawyer Naana Nsafoa Sarpong
7. Dr. Richard Asante Yeboah
8. Dr. Alex Glover Quartey
9. Kwodjo Afari
10. Lawyer Mujeeb Issah Kele
11. Alhaji Iddi Muhayu-Deen – (Secretary to the Committee)
Speaking for and on behalf of the members of the committee, Hon. Alexander Afenyo Markin, welcomed the rare opportunity to serve on the committee and thanked the party leadership for the privilege to serve their party.
He promised that the committee would effectively discharge its mandate in furtherance of the party’s interest and to vindicate the confidence that has been reposed in them.
The NPP is expected to hold its 2021 National Annual Delegates Conference, to among other things, consider the review committee’s report, from December 18th to 20th December, 2021, at the Baba Yara Sports stadium in Kumasi, capital of the Ashanti region. Enditem
