Member of Parliament for Trobu and Second Deputy Majority Chief Whip, Moses Anim, has expressed worry about the decision by some of their senior colleagues not to file for re-election in the 2020 elections.
It has emerged that MP for Tafo-Pankrono constituency in the Ashanti Region Dr. Anthony Osei Akoto has announced he will not contest the ruling party’s upcoming primaries for the 2020 polls.
Experience MPs leaving is worrying because those coming do not have the quality to understand Parliamentary proceedings.
He further stressed both the Majority and Minority must come together to ensure they protect the experience Members of Parliament.
“Both NPP, NDC must always ensure they protect experience Members of Parliament which will help in ensuring  Parliamentary proceedings and debate goes on effectively,” Moses Anim told Kwame Tutu on Anopa Nkomo on Accra-based Kingdom FM 107.7.
MPs bowing out 
Some four National Democratic Congress (NDC) Members of Parliament (MPs) in the Volta Region including former Deputy Finance Minister and Ketu South MP, Fifi Fiavi Kwetey did not pick up nomination forms to contest in the party’s parliamentary primaries.
The others are Richard Quashigah, MP for Keta, Clement Kofi Humado, MP for Anlo, and Dr. Bernice Adiku Heloo, MP for Hohoe.
The Member of Parliament for Tamale Central and former Minister for Roads and Highways, Alhaji Inusah Fuseini also failed to pick nomination forms to contest in the NDC parliamentary primaries.
Some also have explained that their decision not to contest is in fulfillment of their promise to stay for two terms.
