Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, the Majority Leader, has stated that he will not seek re-election when his current term ends in 2024. In an exclusive interview with Joy News, the Suame MP, who is also the Parliamentary Affairs Minister, revealed this.
“We’ve already blasted the trumpets from the roofs, indicating that a decision has been reached.”
He stated, “I’m not contesting; it’s just for the sake of clarity.” Mr. Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu was first elected to the Ghanaian Parliament in 1996, representing the Suame Constituency in the Ashanti Region, on the New Patriotic Party (NPP) ticket.
Since then, he has served as the Member of Parliament for Suame, and he is presently the longest-serving member of Parliament. Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu has been through it all, having served as Minority Whip, Minority Leader, and now Majority Leader.
He will be the longest-serving MP in the 4th republican history by the end of this Parliament.
