Boakye Agyarko refrains from NPP run-off election

A contender aspiring to be the flagbearer for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Boakye Kyeremateng Agyarko, has officially pulled out of the upcoming secondary election meant to decide the 5th candidate. This decision follows the NPP’s announcement that their National Council will form an electoral college to resolve the tie between Mr. Agyarko and his rival, Francis Addai Nimoh. Both individuals secured the 5th position in the recently concluded super delegate conference.

Mr. Agyarko issued a press statement asserting that the National Council’s act of selecting a few individuals to stand in for the 955 participants from the initial round is against the constitution. He also pointed out other violations of the law, claiming that the establishment of the electoral college contradicts the party’s constitution.

“It is totally unacceptable to me that such an unconstitutional act can be perpetuated on the altar of expediency. Am I to surmise that the party did not know the cost implication? It is unconscionable that the rules of the game will be changed midstream.

It is a clear violation of the party’s constitution and the guidelines for the Special Electoral College. It is an unconstitutional act which | cannot allow myself to be associated with,” portions of his statement read.
