A former Deputy Finance Minister and currently the Ranking Member of the Parliamentary Select Committee on Finance, Ato Forson is poised to remain the longest serving MP on the ticket of the opposition, NDC in the Central Region. He currently shares that enviable position with former Komenda Edina Eguafo Abirem, Dr. Ato Quarshie who also enjoyed three terms in Parliament.

The Economist par excellence, who heeded the clarion call from his constituents due to his human relation skills, is poised to become the longest serving MP, ever in the history of the NDC in the Central Region when he enters Parliament on the 7th of January, 2021.

Ato Forson, a very energetic, organized professional with diverse and rich experience in accounting, organizational management and business start-up and growth development polled 25,601 votes to beat his closest contender from the NPP who managed 21,903 of the valid votes cast.

Since entering Parliament in 2009, he has served as an active member of the Finance Committee of Parliament where he has over time distinguished himself as an authority on financial matters. He has demonstrated immense experience and insight into Public Finance and Economic policy issues, thereby making him the trusted voice on the Economy from the opposition side of the House.

He is a highly accomplished and result-driven accountant, entrepreneur and a law maker with more than 20 years working experience in private, corporate and the public sector.
