Speaker of Parliament Alban Bagbin has declared the NPP and the Independent candidate as the Majority group in Parliament.
This was after he read the letter from Independent MP for Fomena Andrews Asiamah who declared his wish to do business with the NPP side of the house.
There has been a debate about which party will form majority in parliament after NPP and NDC had 137 seats each with an independent candidate.
Andrews Asiamah, Fomena MP has written to the Speaker of Parliament to officially notify him of his decision to align with the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Caucus.
This settles the stalemate in Parliament as both the governing NPP and opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and draws the line as to who is Majority and Minority in Parliament.
Following his dismissal from the NPP and subsequent win of the Fomena seat as an independent candidate, Mr Asiamah has been in the spotlight in recent times.
At the inauguration of the 8th Parliament, Mr Asiamah was appointed 2nd Deputy Speak of Parliament.
Although he has already declared his intentions to sit with the NPP in Parliament, his official communiqué had not yet been submitted to the Office of Parliament.
In a letter addressed to the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, Wednesday, Mr Asiamah stated:
“I Andrew Asiamah Amoako, an Independent Member of Parliament for Fomena Constituency, and now 2nd Deputy Speaker for same Parliament do hereby declare that I shall, for the purpose of transacting business in the house associate with the NPP Caucus in the Eighth Parliament.
