Deputy General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Haruna Mohammed says the has rejected claims made by Alan Kyerematen for his withdrawal from the flagbearership race.
Alan Kyerematen cited intimidations of varying intensity unleashed on delegates across the sixteen regions in the recently held Super Delegates Congress, and the alleged attack on his polling agent in North East region and alleged manipulation of the Special Delegates Conference in favour of one particular aspirant as reasons for withdrawal from the contest.
However, in response, the Deputy General Secretary of the NPP, Haruna Mohammed, in an interview on Citi Tv dismissed the claims listed by Mr. Kyerematen.
“The party disagrees that it has skewed the election, because the provisions of the party, clearly indicate those who are supposed to be delegates to the elections. The delegates to the election have been predetermined.
“These are delegates selected from the party’s constitution. So, it will be very difficult for us to accept that it is skewed. The party has not given the power to anybody or supported anybody, we gave a fairground to aspirants to be selected as part of the five,” the Deputy General Secretary of the NPP.
Meanwhile, Mr. Haruna concluded that the Elections Committee and the Disciplinary Committee have “initiated comprehensive investigations into all reported incidents of violations and infractions” that are alleged to have occurred in the super delegates election.
