The Ashanti Regional Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Sam Pyne is wondering why the NDC side in Parliament is still claiming to be the majority.
Contributing to a panel discussion on Peace FM morning show ‘Kokrokoo‘, Sam Pyne queried: “I heard NDC claim to be the majority; when did that happen? This is a matter of numbers…you (NDC) have 137 and NPP also have 137 and one independent. Whichever side he joins becomes the majority; settled. The independent candidate has already indicated that he will join the NPP in parliament so who becomes the majority? Don’t you know simple arithmetic?”

For the avoidance of doubt, I do hereby affirm that I shall cooperate and collaborate with the NPP Caucus in the Eighth Parliament”
