The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Communications Officer, Sammy Gyamfi has said over 15 incumbent Members of Parliament losing the NPP Primaries is a clear indication of the ruling party losing the upcoming 2020 elections.
According to him, the grassroots of Ghana are disappointed in the performance of the ruling NPP after lofty promises in the 2016 electioneering campaign.
“But for the undemocratic imposition of some Members of Parliament by the powers that be in the NPP, the situation would have been worse. In some 65 constituencies, they imposed some senior government officials on the people and ensured that there were no contests there so the people went unopposed. If that had not been done, we are very sure that about 60-70 percent of incumbent MPs would have lost their seats because they together with President Akufo-Addo have failed the people. That is why their own party supporters are beginning to speak against them,” Mr. Gyamfi said.
He added that “we in the NDC are not surprised by the turn of events because we know that President Akufo-Addo and his corrupt government have under-performed and are only making time for an overwhelming rejection by the Ghanaian electorates on December 7, 2020”.
The 2020 New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary primaries are over and some big shots have lost their seats.
About 15 incumbent Members of Parliament (MPs) have lost their seats to newbies ready to face-off against the National Democratic Congress’ parliamentary aspirants lined up for the 2020 elections.
