According to the Elections Committee of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), no candidate or party member has filed an official grievance on the conduct of the Super Delegates Conference held on Saturday, August 26.
Alexander Afenyo-Markin, the vice chairman of the committee, made a statement.
The Effutu politician, speaking to the media on Monday, August 28, at the party’s headquarters, however, said “certain individuals” will be called to account for some remarks they are said to have made.
He claims that the choice was made to protect the reputation and common interests of all party supporters.
“Although the committee has not received any official complaints from any party member or any complaint from any of the aspirants, for the sake of the party, we have taken it upon ourselves to invite some persons to be here to back their claims.
“So the secretary of the committee will write to such persons officially,” he said.
In a news release released on August 27th, Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen denounced an alleged attack on his North East Regional Coordinator during the NPP Super-Delegates elections.
He said that the action was unnecessary and unjustified because his representative had behaved properly at the voting location.
The episode, according to the former Trades and Industry Minister, was a stain on the party’s internal democratic process.
“I would, however, like to express my deep sorrow about the brutal assault on my polling agent in the North East Region. This is an indelible blot on the integrity of the internal democratic process within the NPP,” he said.
“I wish my colleague a speedy recovery and God’s manifold blessings and would like to assure him and his family of my unwavering support for his well-being,” an excerpt of his release said.
Kennedy Agyapong threatened several party figures during the NPP’s Special Electoral College Election in a viral video that was extensively shared on social media and in the news.
He said that his polling agent for the North East Region had been intimidated and dismissed from the voting place, which is what sparked his reaction.
Mr. Afenyo-Markin said all 10 candidates would be given the opportunity to express their opinions or reservations about the process.
“Again, we will invite all aspirants to hear from them. They can be here personally or their authorized representatives,” he added.
