The Member of Parliament for the Bantama constituency in the Ashanti region, Francis Asenso Boakye, has instituted what he called 'MP's political clinic' aimed at privately addressing the needs of his constituents. According to the Member of Parliament, the innovation will allow him to private meetings with his people at either their electoral areas or at his office in the constituency.
"To allow my constituents the privacy to discuss pertinent issues, I have initiated the “MP’s Political Clinic”, which is a one-on-one interaction session with me as their Member of Parliament. This will be held either at the MP’s constituency office or at an electoral area. Unlike the community meetings, this initiative is a platform to discuss confidential matters, as well as provide me with first-hand information on core matters that directly impact on the development of the constituency" he wrote on his Facebook page.
The innovation is coming at a time when most members of parliament are devising several strategies to get closer to their constituents.
Mr Francis Asenso Boakye was a former deputy Chief of Staff at the Jubilee House in the first term government of President Akufo-Addo. He contested the party's Parliamentary primaries won against the incumbent MP in his bid to represent the New Patriotic Party (NPP) at the 2020 parliamentary elections. He is the current Minister for Works and Housing after he won the Bantama seat and was appointed Minister by President Akufo-Addo. He succeeded Daniel Okyem Aboagye as MP and in the 2020 General Elections. He polled 88.84% of total votes cast to emerge winer of the Parliamentary election.
