Some of the defeated aspirants are threatening to contest the 2016 parliamentary elections as independent candidates because they were not satisfied with the processes leading to the primaries.

An aspirant in the Afigya Sekyere East primary, Lt Col. Ababio Serebour, argued that truth was lost in the process.

“I have declared to go independent and there is no turning back,” he told the media after the primary in the constituency.

In a related development, the General Secretary of the NPP, Mr. Kwabena Agyei Agyepong, has warned all aspirants who lost their bid to contest the 2016 parliamentary elections on the ticket of the NPP to refrain from going independent, since the party’s law abhors that.

He said per the NPP’s rules and regulations governing the conduct of primaries, it was an offence punishable by dismissal if any failed aspirant threatened to go independent.

Meanwhile, there were some dramatic scenes at some of the locations where the primaries were conducted.

In the Ada Constituency, some delegates had initially wanted a vote on the sole aspirant, instead of popular acclamation.

That had led to a temporary hold-up in the process which was later resolved by the official from the Electoral Commission.
