Deputy minority leader James Klutse Avedzi has bemoaned the number of experienced heads and institutional memories Ghana’s parliament will be losing after the NDC’s Parliamentary primaries.
After the opposition NDC held its primaries last Saturday nine incumbent MP’s lost their seat and will not be in parliament.
Meanwhile nine other MP’s have decided to call it time on their parliamentary careers and will not be seeking re-election come 2020.
This the deputy minority leader believes it will cause a problem in parliamentary work in the short term but believes those coming will be able to learn quickly on the job in the long term.

“For instance, when it comes to constitution affairs there are very few people who are equal to someone like Hon.Yile Chireh one of the best we have “he lamented
