Minority Leader and Member of Parliament (MP) for Tamale South, Mr Haruna Iddrisu, has said his Majority counterpart, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, will win the upcoming parliamentary elections, despite challenges from an independent contender for the Suame seat.
Mr George Prempeh, with links to the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), is contesting as an independent candidate, determined to unseat Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, the MP for Suame and Leader of Government Business.
Mr Prempeh was unable to contest the NPP primaries because the delegates endorsed the current Suame MP to go unopposed.
However, the Minority Leader, during a comment on the Floor of Parliament, suggested that attempts to unseat the incumbent Suame MP would cut no ice.
He was speaking during the motion for the House to adopt the Business Statement for the Third Week.
Mr Haruna suggested that legislators must ensure there was balance between their presence in their constituencies and the work in the House, as they endeavoured to retain their seats in the next elections.
