The vetting committee of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has failed Mr Albert Kan Dapaah Junior, who is contesting the incumbent MP for Ablekuma West, Mrs Ursula Owusu-Ekuful to become the parliamentary candidate for the constituency.
Regional Secretary of the party, Parker Ordalai France, after Monday’s vetting told Class News’ Blessed Sogah that Mr Kan-Dapaah Jr. has not been disqualified but had failed and can only contest if the party, at the national level, gives him the go-ahead after he appeals to them.
“We don’t disqualify, we only make recommendations to the national party, so, if the national party says: ‘You are not able to contest’, then they have disqualified you,” Mr France stated,
Asked why Mr Kan-Dapaah Jr. was failed, the regional secretary explained that: “For us, Kan-Dapaah Jr. even brought the party’s name into disrepute. He issued a certain statement on Facebook, he granted an interview at Citi FM and then he labeled a member of parliament for the constituency, that the MP created another album to run the 2016 election.
“He [Kan Dapaah Jr.] said the MP brought her own electoral register – which is not correct. It is the region which supervised all elections concerning constituencies, so, he has tarnished the image of the region, the national party and the NPP as a whole and he accepted that he didn’t do well but he’s ready to apologise”.
