The Chairman of the Convention People’s Party (CPP) in the Adentan Constituency, Mr Abdul Malik Jeleel, has called on the National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary aspirants in the area to ensure peaceful primaries on Saturday, May 13, 2023. He expressed concern over the tension on the ground and advised the aspirants to put their supporters in check to prevent any form of electoral violence. Mr Jeleel also called on the Party leadership to intensify security measures on the voting day to ensure a smooth process.

The NDC is scheduled to hold its presidential and parliamentary primaries on May 13, 2023, to elect a flagbearer and parliamentary candidates for the 2024 Presidential and Parliamentary elections. The Adentan Constituency has three aspirants vying for the position, namely Mohammed Adamu Ramadan, the incumbent MP, Nana Oye Bampoe Addo, a former Minister of Gender, Children, and Social Protection, and Linda Asibi Awuni, a youth activist.

Mr Jeleel urged the aspirants to speak to their supporters to conduct themselves well before and during the elections to prevent any form of electoral violence. He emphasized that internal elections were part and parcel of democratic principles but cautioned that they should not jeopardize national peace and security. He urged the aspirants to be mindful of the stakes involved and work towards a peaceful process.

The CPP Chairman also expressed the party’s readiness to contest and win the Adentan seat in the 2024 general election. He stated that the people of Adentan were looking for the best next alternative to deliver solid development for them, and a seat that swings meant that the people lacked absolute confidence in the two political parties that fielded the candidates. He urged the CPP aspirants to work hard to win the confidence of the people and deliver on their promises.

For the most part, Mr Jeleel’s call for peaceful primaries is timely, considering the recent spate of electoral violence in the country. The NDC aspirants in the Adentan Constituency must ensure that their supporters conduct themselves peacefully before, during, and after the elections to prevent any form of violence.

It is also crucial for the Party leadership to intensify security measures on the voting day to prevent any form of electoral malpractice or violence. Finally, the CPP’s readiness to contest and win the Adentan seat is a significant challenge to the NDC and the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), and it underscores the importance of healthy political competition in a democracy.
