Crabbe predicts doom for NPP in Nov 7 polls

Suspended Second Vice Chairman of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) Sammy Crabbe has predicted doom for the party, come November, if the party does not put in place measures to be re-united.

Mr. Crabbe said the seeming instability in the party, disregard for the party’s constitution and the factions created in the party are not good indicators of the party’s preparedness to secure power in the upcoming elections.

He made this known in an interview with the host of 3FM’s morning show Sunrise.

“People rally around individuals in the party, and that is the bane of the party,” he said.

“This is a very big thing that we are on, and if we don’t get the constitution to work, there is no way we can win the election. Elections are not won in isolation. We need to get the party working again, close up the factions and re-unite as one.”

He added that the numerous suspensions and removal of executives from the party without due course is a clear case of the party’s inability to handle its home.

“How much more an entire party?” he wondered.

Mr Crabbe also revealed that some Members of Parliament (MPs) of the NPP are protecting their positions at the expense of the protection of the party because of the numerous removals, suspensions and breach of the party’s constitution.

“Even now information that I am getting and the threats from the Campaign Manager of the presidential candidate of the NPP shows that nothing is going on at the grass roots. The executives in the regions are protecting their position over the victory of the party. Everybody is scared and also interested in maintaining their offices because they never know two or three people will wake up one morning and say they have been removed or suspended. This is what the constitution wanted to avoid, but some people could see over their shoulders, and now this.”
