The newly elected General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Justin Kodua Frimpong has pledged to run a “transparent” administration, devoid of any form of discrimination.
He said his leadership will not entertain some difficulties when it comes to party internal elections, where some delegates will be prevented from voting.
His comment comes after some members of the Tertiary Education Confederacy of the NPP (TESCON) were unable to cast their ballot at last Saturday’s elections as a result of a court injunction.
“Under my watch, I will be fair but firm and make sure that party rules will work. There will be discipline in our party, there will be discipline in NPP, and we are going to apply the constitution of NPP to the fullest without fear or favour. Under my watch the party will not make a directive and people will go contrary to the directive,” he said on Oman FM.
Tertiary Students Confederacy (TESCON) proxy voters numbering about 291 members were barred from casting their vote in the just ended 2022 NPP National Delegates Conference.
This is as a result of an injunction that was served on them.
Chairman of the Election Committee, Peter Mac Manu who received the court injunction on the eve of the election announced on Saturday moments before that election.
“Our TESCON delegates and local proxy voters numbering 15 and 291 will not be able to cast their votes because there is an injunction. We received the injunction last night,” he said.
A total of 306 delegates made up of 291 TESCON delegates and 15 proxy voters were barred from casting their votes last Saturday as a result of the court injunction.
Reacting to this, Lawyer Justin Kodua said there will not be selective justice in the party under his watch.
“I will make sure I hold the party in unity, everyone is given respect, appreciation and recognition but nobody can take this party for granted. The party headquarters is going to work,” he said.
