Founder and leader of the Movement for Change, Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen, has disclosed that he will be working with Members of Parliament from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and National Democratic Congress (NDC) if elected President.

Aside from candidates from other political parties who will make it in Parliament this, year, Mr. Kyerematen says he will be choosing half of his ministers from the two main political parties due to the demand by the Constitution of the Republic.

Article 78(1) of the 1992 Constitution requires the President to appoint not less than half of ministers of State from within Parliament.

For this reason, the former Trade and Industry Minister says he will choose half of his ministers from the two main parties.

“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.

“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,” he said on Accra-based Citi FM Wednesday, July 03, 2024.

Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen resigned from the New Patriotic Party to form the Movement for Change but will be contesting the 2024 elections on the ticket of the Alliance for Revolutionary Change.

The Alliance comprises the Movement for Change and other movements and smaller political parties coming together.
