Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress, Koku Anyidoho, has explained that the party lost most of its seats in parliament due to the arrogance some of its members portrayed after being elected into office.
He was speaking in an interview with Accra based United Television after a press conference held by the NDC in response to an earlier media briefing the New Patriotic Party made with regards to the outcome of the 2016 general election.
“We are aware that we have lost most of our seats. I know this is as a result of some form of arrogance our parliamentarians portrayed to their respective constituents” – he said.
“After winning the seat in the past elections, they refused to touch based with the people. Some of them barely visited the constituencies after the election. Others also did not honour invitations to certain social gatherings in the constituency” – he added.
The NDC, who obtained 148 seats in parliament in the 2012 elections will in the next parliament, have about 80 seats.
