The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has reopened nominations for its parliamentary primaries in the Ashaiman Constituency after it earlier suspended it following the passing of one of the two aspirants, Emmanuel Max-Voy.

The party’s leadership took the decision after a meeting with executives of the party from the constituency to the national level.

Filing of the nominations, the party said in a press release, will be held on Monday, August 19 while vetting of candidates and balloting for positions will take place later in the evening on the same day.

The Ashaiman Constituency parliamentary primaries will be held on August 24, 2019, just as the other constituencies across the country.

“Filing of nomination will be on Monday 19th August 2019. Vetting and balloting follow at 6:00 pm on Monday 19th August 2019. The election will be held on the 24th August alongside the rest of the constituencies that will take place nationwide as scheduled”, the statement noted.

Emmanuel Max-Voy, was said to have taken ill moments after he picked his nomination forms from the party’s office.

He also went through the vetting process successfully alongside the incumbent, Ernest Norgbey.

Max-Voy’s condition deteriorated and was subsequently admitted at the Ridge Hospital until his unfortunate demise on August 4, 2019.

He was the only person challenging the candidature of the NDC incumbent MP for Ashaiman, Hon. Norgbey.

The party suspended all political activity in the constituency following the demise of the aspirant.
