NPP needs majority in next Parliament

Philip Addison, a New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary aspirant contesting the Korley Klottey constituency says the party needs more parliamentary seats to form majority in the next House .

He, therefore, appealed to delegates in the forthcoming primaries to vote for unifying candidates who could attract votes from supporters in the other political parties.

Mr Addison, who led the NPP legal team in the Election 2012 Supreme Court petition, emphasised that it was definite that the NPP would win the 2016 general elections, but the party would find it tough if it failed to form the majority in Parliament.

He was addressing constituency executives and some teeming supporters of the party in the Nkoranza Municipality, when Ms Jacqueline Boatemaa Bonsu, a parliamentary aspirant for the Nkoranza South Constituency, launched her campaign.

Mr Addison noted that one of the greatest lessons the party had learnt from the 2012 election petition was that elections were won at the polling stations.

He reminded the delegates that they were responsible for activities at all the polling stations, and therefore indicated that for the NPP to ensure victory in 2016, every polling station executive ought to be conversant with all activities and do their work properly.

“You are placed at the polling stations as a guard and you ought to make sure that everything goes on smoothly”, he said.

According to Mr Addison, 2016 would be a great year for the party, and asked supporters and members to embrace defectors to ensure a landslide victory.

He observed that there were more opportunities for female Members of Parliament (MPs), and urged the delegates to vote for women contesting the primaries in the various constituencies.
