Akuffo Addo Likely To Lose 2020 Polls If… Ben Ephson Predicts

Published

on


Ben Ephson has predicted that President Akufo-Addo is likely to lose some 450,000 votes in the December 7 elections if candidates within the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) are disqualified.

According to the pollster, chances of the incumbent NPP winning the 2020 polls will be minimal if the major opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) selects a strong running mate.

He indicated that if the NPP before their upcoming parliamentary primaries, disqualifies or disenfranchises any of the contenders, then most of its supporters would be lost.

This comes on the heels of claims by some members of the NPP in the Ashanti Region that their regional executives are bent on making some incumbent MPs go unopposed.

Speaking on Joy News, Mr. Ephson warned “If they persist in trying to disenfranchise or disqualify contenders and there is a level of apathy… the NPP candidate Akufo-Addo could enter the 2020 elections minus 400 to 450,000 votes. So if a candidate gets disqualified, one will not get up and vote…So these are some of the pitfalls that could affect their chances and voting pattern.

But responding to Mr. Ephson’s comment, the National Organizer of the NPP, Sammi Awuku allayed such fears saying mechanisms have been put in place to ensure all aspirants who are disqualified go through the necessary appeal processes right through to the National level.

“It’s a process and once the person picks nomination forms the person subjects himself to the process of scrutiny. The person also subjected himself to the process of vetting and after vetting if the person doesn’t make it, the person has an option to appeal. Subsequently, after the appeal process, it goes to the National Executive Committee.”

Sammi Awuku further debunked assertions that people are disqualified because they are not favorites of the leaders.

He noted “so it’s not a case of if someone doesn’t like you at the parliamentary vetting committee level you don’t get any opportunity to make it to the next step. In any case, we had people who have gone through the vetting, then subsequently someone appealed that nomination, and then they had to be disqualified. We also had instances of people who were vetted out at the parliamentary vetting committee level but then upon appeal, they were able to be reinstated.”

Ten NDC Supporters Arrested In Asawase Constituency

Published

on


Ten party supporters of the NDC have been arrested by the Anti-Robbery unit of the Ghana Police Service at the Asawase constituency.

According to reports, the reason for their arrest is yet to be given.

However, the Member of Parliament for Asawase, Alhaji Muntaka Mubarak, told journalists that the armed officers raided the Aboabo Library upon a tipoff that a suspect they [police] were looking for was in the area.

He also expressed concern that this may be an attempt to intimidate members of the NDC.

“I have seen the boys. They are in high spirits. They will make their statements and then we will see the way forward. The commander has assured us that it [the arrest] is not to intimidate us,” the MP said to the press.

“They have given us assurances that even though today is Sunday, they are taking their statements and those they believe are not part of those they are looking for, they will give them bail and we will go,” Mr. Mubarak added.

The MP further assured that the police will be “given space to do their work.”
