‘No deliberate attempt to frustrate parliamentary primary contestants’

The National Executive of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has dispelled allegation of sabotage levelled against some constituency executives in the sale of forms for the party’s parliamentary primary.

Nominations ended yesterday, but some party members in some constituencies have indicated that they cannot access the forms and have alleged that there is a deliberate attempt to frustrate them from picking forms to contest in the primary.

However a Deputy General Secretary of the party, Peter Boamah Otokunor, has asked those who felt frustrated at the constituency level, to access the forms at the regional or national level saying, “When you go to the constituency office and you are unable for a very good reason to get the forms, and you go to the regions and you are unable to get the forms, you can come to the headquarters.”

Mr Otokunor, however, assured that the party would in due time give clearance for the primary to be held in constituencies where electoral processes have been suspended in 17 constituencies including Tano South in the Ahafo Region, Chereponi in the North East Region, and Kpandai and Bimbilla in the Northern Region.

“This is in accordance with the NDC National Executive Committee’s decision to progressively conduct the parliamentary primary scheduled to take place on August 24, 2019, the party opened nominations from July 10 to July 12 for the primary, filing of the nomination forms has been scheduled for July 18 and July 19, price of the forms is GH¢2000 with the filing fees fixed at GH¢35,000 for all contestants except women and persons with disability, who are to pay GH¢17,500,” Mr Otokunor explained -citinewsroom.com
