Alan Kyerematen announces plan to abolish council of state


Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen, founder and leader of the Movement for Change (M4C), has announced plans to abolish the Council of State if elected president. This declaration was made during the launch of the party’s manifesto, “The Great Transformational Plan (GTP),” on Monday, June 24.


Kyerematen proposed replacing the Council of State with a new Second Chamber of Parliament that includes representation from key stakeholder groups, such as labor unions, faith-based organizations, traditional authorities, professional bodies, gender-based organizations, the private sector, and people with disabilities.


“Abolish the Council of State and establish a new Second Chamber of Parliament with a representation from key stakeholders including faith-based organisations, traditional authorities, professional bodies, gender-based organisations, the private sector, labour unions, and people with disabilities. That is the truly representative government. That is what we call an all-inclusive government and national unity, and that is going to happen,” Kyerematen stated.


He criticized the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC), arguing that they have exhausted their competencies and capabilities. He noted that these two parties have governed Ghana for the last 32 years without demonstrating viable plans for the country’s future. Kyerematen urged Ghanaians to look beyond the NPP and NDC and consider the Movement for Change in the 2024 Presidential election, where he plans to run as an independent candidate.


At the manifesto launch in Accra, Kyerematen described the GTP as “a blueprint to Ghana’s economic transformation” and outlined robust policies and practical steps towards building an enterprise economy. The plan aims to create a prosperous, united, and peaceful Ghana with equal opportunities for all, especially young people, women, and other vulnerable groups, to realize their full potential and improve their livelihoods and well-being.


Kyerematen criticized the extensive borrowing practices of the NPP and NDC, stating, “The culture of unrestrained borrowing is what has landed us into the ditch in which we find ourselves.” He pointed out that with only five months remaining until the general elections, citizens were still waiting for the manifestos of the two leading parties.
