Ho West MP explains why he threatened to resign

Member of Parliament for Ho West, Emmanuel Kwasi Bedzrah has brushed aside media reports that he has written to the Speaker of Parliament of his intention to relinquish his seat at the National Assembly.

The National Democratic Congress, NDC, legislator says the report has had to do with a message on social media circulated by his constituency’s executives about the suspension of Saturday’s elections.

Speaking to TV3, Kwasi Bedzrah said that was what prompted his threat to resign from the party if the due process is not followed.

He stressed that it is important that grassroots members are given the chance to vote in the impending election.

“By the grace of God, the right thing was done [on Tuesday],” he indicated.

The Minority in Parliament on Tuesday was locked up in a crunch meeting over the reports of Mr Bedzrah’s resignation but it appears the issues were amicably settled.

But Mr Bedzrah, who is the Ranking Member on the Government Assurance Committee, accused NDC’s National Organiser Kofi Adams as part of the problems brewing in his constituency.

He said his style of politics is not for personal gain.

“I am not into this game because of personal interests,” he stated.

“We are in it to serve the people.”
