New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Tarkwa Nsuaem constituency, Mireku Duker, has expressed disappointment over the National Democratic Congress (NDC)’s decision to walkout of an Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting with the Electoral Commission on Tuesday.

Honourable Duker said he expected the NDC to prove itself to Ghanaians as the alternative that can manage Ghana’s economy.

“We must be serious for once as an opposition party who wants to come into power but he NDC has decided that if it’s not a press conference, it will be a demonstration. They are not providing the alternative [Ghana needs],” he said.

Speaking on Adom TV’s Badwam show, Mr Duker described the NDC’s walkout as “unnecessary”.


“If I were an NDC member, I’d be disappointed in the leaders of the party because they didn’t serve my interest by walking out of the meeting,” he lamented.

He noted that IPAC is there to serve the interest of political parties as its stakeholders and the need for the parties to actively participate in discourse.

“IPAC is to foster peace among parties in our political discourse so if IPAC has called for a meeting and there is an issue raised which you disagree with, you don’t walk out. You discuss the issue,” he urged.
