The ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) held key discussions with its Majority Caucus in Parliament on strengthening collaboration ahead of the 2024 general elections.

The party leadership, led by National Chairman Stephen Ntim and General Secretary Justin Kodua, met with the Majority Leadership Caucus at the NPP headquarters on Tuesday.

The aims were to deepen cooperation between the party and its parliamentary representatives to strategise ways to capture more seats in 2024.

According to Henry Nana Boakye, the NPP's National Organizer who reported on the meeting on Facebook, "this refreshing move was to deepen the collaboration between the Party and it’s leadership in parliament towards winning more seats in the 2024 General elections."

Majority Leader Alexander Afenyo-Markin and Majority Chief Whip Frank Annoh-Dompreh led the caucus to the meeting.

The ruling party amassed 169 seats against NDC’s 106 in the 2016 general elections after garnering over 53% in the presidential polls which saw President Nana Akufo-Addo wrestle power from then incumbent John Dramani Mahama.

However, the party lost 32 of the seats to the opposition NDC. An independent candidate who later crossed carpet to NPP to form a parliamentary majority of 138 seats in the 2020 elections.
