National Chairman of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, and General Secretary, Fifi Kwetey, will be in attendance at the meeting.
So far, 48 opposition lawmakers have signed a petition to the party executives, requesting the reversal of the decision, which they deem unpopular.
Many NDC MPs, including Ibrahim Murtala Mohammed, have expressed their shock at the decision to change the party’s leadership in Parliament, without any prior consultation with the caucus.
The new leadership includes Dr Cassiel Ato Forson as the Minority Leader, replacing Tamale South MP Haruna Iddrisu, and Ellembelle MP Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah as the Deputy Minority Leader, taking over from James Klutse Avedzi.
Tamale Central MP has condemned the lack of communication and consultation before the decision was made, and highlighted that many MPs found out about the decision on social media.
He also stressed that the NDC is a democratic party and should uphold democratic principles and that the lack of consultation before making this decision is disrespectful.
Other MPs, including Charles Agbeve, have also called for explanations and reasoning behind the decision, as it was not previously discussed or consulted.
National Chairman of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has stated that the decision was taken based on the current trend of debate on national issues and the party’s strategy for the upcoming 2024 elections.
