Mahama declares war on Annoh-Dompreh

Frank Annoh-Dompreh,
Former President John Mahama has launched a political warfare against the Majority Chief Whip and Member of Parliament for Nsawam/Adoagyiri in the Eastern Region, Frank Annoh-Dompreh, calling on members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the area to find all means in making sure Mr Dompreh losses the Nsawam seat.
According to Mr. Mahama, Frank Annoh-Dompreh has been causing problems for the NDC  Minority caucus in Parliament, leading to division among the caucus.
Addressing NDC supporters as part of a campaign tour in the Eastern Region,  Mr Mahama accused the Nsawam Adoagyiri MP of inducing some NDC MPs to endorse policies of government contrary to the collective position of the opposition party.
He accused Mr Dompreh of succeeding in dividing the front of the NDC Minority in Parliament, underscoring the need for him to lose his seat in order for the NDC to have peace in the next Parliament.
NDC internal issue
There has been recent disagreement between leadership of the NDC and the minority caucus in Parliament.
The disagreement stem from alleged approval of government policies by the minority, despite the party’s contrary position.
The disagreement led to the NDC leadership unilaterally changing the parliamentary leadership. As part of the reasons, the Haruna Iddrisu led minority leadership was accused of being in bed with the government.
The change in leadership did not affect the majority side’s ability to push through key government policies with the recent ones being the approval of six ministers, two judges and three revenue bills.
Thi, according to Mr Mahama, is due to the ability of the Nsawam legislator and majority chief whip to infiltrate the opposition party’s caucus in Parliament.
Report indicate that Mr Dompreh’s good human relations has helped the majority side in building good working relationship with the Minority.
This, the report suggests, are often capitalised by the majority in building consensus with their counterparts in the NDC.
