James Korsah-Brown, an aspirant parliamentary candidate for Mfantseman Constituency, has appealed to the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) leaders and supporters, particularly delegates, to give him an opportunity to lead the party in the next parliamentary primaries.
Mr. Korsah-Brown ran in the parliamentary primaries with the previous Member of Parliament (MP) for Mfantseman Constituency on June 19, 2020, however Hon Ekow Quansah Hayford was slain while campaigning on October 9, 2020.
When this occurred, the NPP leadership authorized the dead MP’s widow, Mrs. Ophelia Mensah Hayford, a serving police officer, to head the Mfantseman NPP as their Parliamentary Candidate for obvious reasons.
Mr. Korsah-Brown stated that after supporting both his husband and wife’s candidacy, it was now his turn to be handed the mandate to represent the NPP in the 2024 elections.
When he filed his candidacy at the Constituency Office, he advocated for free and fair parliamentary primaries and advised the party’s leadership to avoid gathering and campaigning for a single candidate.
“Four years ago, I picked a nomination form for the contest where the executives assured me free and fair elections. To be frank that contest wasn’t free and fair and later ended up in hatred. I have devoted that money to the filing process but I seek only one thing from the executives, that is fairness and that is all I require because this time we will take action and when there is action, there will be an equal reaction” Mr. Korsah-Brown warned.
