NPP elections: Subin picks new constituency officers amid tight security


Security has been beefed up at the Amankwaatia School park as the New Patriotic Party, NPP, picks new executives in the Subin Constituency of the Ashanti Region.

Some candidates are already questioning the process as they claim an injunction has been placed on the election.

Others also accused some individuals within the party of attempt to violate the electoral rules to favour other candidates.

“The law of the land is telling us not to go ahead with this election. Everything hasn’t gone well since this exercise started. I don’t have an album as a contestant. Yesterday they held an emergency meeting and they told us the election would be held today. I don’t have an album, I don’t have an agent”, said Mark Kyei, a candidate who is eyeing for the chairmanship slot in that Constituency.

“These grievances had been reported and I think somebody from the top may know all these things but if we sit down for such things to happen the we are heading to opposition, because of somebody’s selfish interest”, he added.

Near chaos

Over 960 delegates are expected to vote in the constituency election which is being supervised by the Electoral Commission, EC.

Policemen had to be called in on several occasions to halt clashes between factions ahead of the election.

MP for the area, Eugene Boakye Antwi and other party representatives are also observing the process.

The party is picking new officers as it re-organizes its base ahead of the 2024 general elections.

The Constituency elections is the next hurdle to cross after polling station and electoral coordinators’ elections were held amid chaos and lawsuits.
