The National Organiser of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) has accused Incumbent Member of Parliament for the Klottey Korle constituency, Nii Armah Ashietey of contesting the outcome of the Klottey Korle primary without recourse to party internal mechanism.
Nii John Coleman and Nii Armah Ashietey who contested last November NDC parliamentary primaries and lost to Dr. Zanetor Rawlings are currently in court challenging the legality of her candidature on the grounds that she is not a registered voter.
However, Mr. Kofi Adams reacting to the litigation at the Klottey Korle constituency said the two went ahead to file a suit in court on the matter without first exhausting all remedies provided under the party’s constitution.
“Per the guidelines provided for by the NDC constitution, If you’re dissatisfied with the outcome of the election you are required to petition and deal with the issues internally.
“Two committees were set by the party to receive and deal with petitions from across-board those candidates who were dissatisfied with the outcome of the vetting we conducted and the elections as well and there are no complaints whatsoever made by anyone in respect of the primary from Klottey Korle.
“The Alhaji Huudu Yahaya committee that was set to look into matters regarding the elections is even still operating at the moment and no one has come out with any issue that has to do with elections at Klottey Korle.
“So we were taken aback that some people have filed a case in court challenging the outcome of the elections in the constituency” he told Fiifi Banson on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa 102.3 FM.
