Alan Kyerematen to appoint ministers from NPP & NDC if elected President

Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen, the leader of the Movement for Change and an independent presidential aspirant says when he becomes president, he will appoint half of his ministers from Parliament, specifically from both the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC).


Mr. Kyerematen emphasised that his ministerial appointments, mandated by the 1992 Constitution, will be inclusive and based on individual merit rather than political affiliation. 

He was speaking in a radio interview on Accra based Citi FM on the morning show on Wednesday.

“I hear people asking, how are you going to get your ministers but that is very simple. I am saying that I will pick ministers from the two parties that are represented in Parliament and if there are other parties that will make it to Parliament, I also have the flexibility to pick independent candidates," Mr. Kyerematen stated.

“I am picking them not because they are NPP or NDC. I will pick them on the basis of their own individual merits. It is just that they are in Parliament and I am required by the constitution to pick at least half of my ministers from Parliament.”
