Some sympathisers of the qualified aspirant in the Asawase constituency primaries of NDC have besieged the party’s office in the Ashanti region, to protest the decision.
The supporters say they are unhappy about the disqualification of their preferred Parliamentary aspirant, Masawudu Mubarick by the party’s hierarchy in the constituency.
The incumbent Asawase MP, Muntaka Mubarak was on Tuesday, September 3, declared to contest the 2020 parliamentary elections on the ticket of the opposition party unopposed.
This follows the acceptance of a report by the Doe Adjaho Committee which was constituted to look into petitions surrounding the selection of parliamentary candidates.
The NDC held parliamentary primaries nationwide but the elections were put on hold in five constituencies including Asawase.
Elections were later held in four of the constituencies leaving Asawase where some NDC members had filed a petition to the National Executive Council of the party.
This follows the petitioners' inability to file the nomination of Masawudu Mubarick, the aspirant who was challenging the incumbent.
