145 delegates in the Asante-Akim North Constituency have expressed concern over the removal of their names from the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) delegates album for the constituency.
The group of concerned polling station executives(delegates) in the constituency at a press briefing today disclosed they had not received any reasons for which party executives had taken the decision to expunge their names from the delegates album.
According to them, they were elected in 2018 to be in office for four years and are mandated to take part in elections of party executives and parliamentary candidates.
The NPP is scheduled to hold its primaries to select outstanding MP aspirants for the party in the 2020 general election on June 20. The removal of the 145 polling station executives means they cannot take part in the exercise to select who leads the party in the constituency.
The group stated that their names have been removed from the delegates album and replaced by people who are not known in their respective polling stations describing the action by the constituency executives as illegal.
The delegates are therefore seeking an intervention by the National Executive body of the party to ensure that the constituency executives upholds the the party constitution.
