As the current Majority Leader in Parliament, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu remains the longest-serving Member of Parliament in the House, on the side of the New Patriotic Party.
Having entered parliament in 1996 as the MP for Old Tafo Suame, the MP, who is also the Minister for Parliamentary Affairs, is considered one of the most experienced lawmakers in the country.
In his experience, he has been both Minority Leader and Majority Leader in Parliament; positions that only the sitting Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, can match him on, just as with the number of years both of them have been in the House.
However, there are two other senior Members of Parliament from the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
These MPs: Kennedy Agyapong (Assin Central) and Kobina Tahir Hammond (Adansi-Asokwa).
