The main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) will give true meaning to its recently announced affirmative action policy if it reserved 50 of its 120 safe parliamentary seats for women aspirants, pollster Ben Ephson has said on Ephson’s file on Starr FM.

In Mr Ephson’s view, the policy, in its current form, which bars male aspirants from contesting the party’s only 16 female MPs, is not an affirmative action policy in its true sense.

“If the NPP actually wants to have a policy of affirmative action, they could have decided to take 50 of their 120 safe seats and adopt a resolution…that for the 50 constituencies, only females should contest those 50 safe seats then it means that once the elections are held, you straight away you are going to have 50 women in Parliament.

“That’s a better option for affirmative action,” the Managing Editor of the Daily Dispatch Newspaper said Friday.
