NPP has been fair to all parliamentary aspirants – Nana B

The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has denied allegations of discrimination in the party’s parliamentary primary selection process.

The National Organizer for the NPP, Henry Nana Boakye, addressing the issue of discrimination in the parliamentary primaries scheduled for Saturday, January 27, said the party had dealt fairly with all the aspirants.

It will be recalled that a polling station executive of the NPP recently filed a suit to stop the Municipal Chief Executive of Asokore Mampong, Kennedy Kankam, from participating in the elections.

The applicant was seeking a court interpretation of the rules governing the conduct of NPP parliamentary primaries in constituencies with sitting MPs, given Mr Kankam’s current position as the Municipal Chief Executive of Asokore Mampong.

Henry Nana Boakye, speaking on the legal issue, noted that; “Per the rules and regulations, it was drafted from the authority of the National Council, as contained in the press release signed by the general secretary, Justin Frimpong Koduah. Don’t forget that this matter when it came to Gary Nimako, who is the vetting committee chairman, referred the matter to NEC, and that was an appropriate conduct, and NEC passed it and took a position”.

He added that the applicant had withdrawn the case, paving the way for Kennedy Kankam to contest in the upcoming parliamentary primaries.

“We received some court processes, subsequently, we have also received a notice from the said person that they are no more interested in pursuing the matter. This gives the party the green light to conduct elections in the Nhyiaeso constituency. NEC, at its last meeting, cleared Hon. Kennedy Kankam to be part of the elections, so I can say he has been cleared to be part of the election”,” the National Organizer of the New Patriotic Party.
