DonkorKrom (ER), Jan. 05 GNA-Some branch executives and polling station chairmen of the Afram Plains North Constituency of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), have protested against the candidature of two contestants of the Parliamentary seat for the area.
The executives claimed that Madam Betty Krossby and Dr Antony Nsoh Akunzule were not qualified by the NDC constitution to stand as Parliamentary candidates.
They had therefore petitioned the constituency chairman with copies to both Regional and National Chairmen of the Party and the Eastern Regional Minister, to look into their grievances.
The petition, which was signed by 16 of the executives indicated that by the party’s constitution, anyone who wanted to contest as a Member of Parliament (MP), must stay or work with the party in the area for at least two years and above.
“Secondly, the person too must be a registered voter within the constituency”.
The petitioners claimed that both Madam Krossby and Dr Akunzule did not satisfy those requirements and therefore appealed that the matter be looked into critically to avoid further embarrassment.
The petitioners include; Mr Andrews Donkor, of the L/A, JHS, Mem-Chemfre, Emmanuel Dzabu, R/C Primary, Mem-Chemfre, Sulley Mana, L/A Primary, Mem-Chemfre, Aliheli Norbert, and Christian Adzor, Brumben polling stations.
Others were; Selase Afrakwadwo, Mem-Chemfre, Dzanibibi Simon, Anidzi, Kofi Adombor, Dadease, Amankwa, Agbanyo Raphael, Kyeiase Amankwa, Dorme Francis Nkami Amankwa and Emmanuel Ameko of the Asikesu-Donkorkrom polling stations.
The rest include; Bright Attakwadzo, L/A primary Mem-Chemfre, John Amoako, DonkorKrom, Dupe Stephen, Mem-Chemfre, Simon Kaicraba, Abotanso number two and Ben Komla Nyarkson, Atakora of the DonkorKrom polling stations.
