Addison boycotts Klottey Korle primary

Popular lawyer Phillip Addison stormed out of the venue for Sunday’s parliamentary primary in the Klottey Korle Constituency after raising some concerns.

He was joined by another contestant, Nii Adjei Tawiah, who also raised concerns with the process.

The two had protested the holding of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary primary on Sunday, August 2, indicating that delegates had agreed to hold the oft-injuncted election on Saturday, August 8.

Only Nii Noi Nortey, the third aspirant, was satisfied with the elections underway at the party’s headquarters in Asylum Down.

The General Secretary of NPP, Kwabena Agyepong, had directed the elections – together with that of Okaikoi South Constitunecy – to be held on Sunday.

The directive has been met with some opposition with Okaikoi South aspirant Vicky Bright withdrawing from the election on its eve.

She called the process “flawed” and “fraudulent”.

It is unclear what the next action of the aggrieved candidates will be.
