Estimated read time 3 min read

Presidential candidate hopeful of the New Patriotic Party, Alan Kyeremante has through his campaign raised questions about the credibility of the register to be used for the primaries. The campaign team for Alan Kyeremanten wrote a letter dated August 2, 2023, and copied to the General Secretary of the party alleging discrepancies in the register.

The letter said after the team reviewed the Register for the Special Delegates Conference, it uncovered some discrepancies including the names of deceased persons still present in the register. Other deceased persons have been replaced with names of people who are alive while there are also duplicates.

Read the letter below.

I write for and on behalf of the Alan for President (A4P) Campaign.

Aspirants were advised to review the Register for the Special Delegates Conference (SDC) and to return their comments within one week of receipt of the Register.

Hon. Nana Ohene-Now, member of the A4P Campaign, signed for the Register on Friday 28th July 2023. After an audit and review of the guidelines for the SDC. please find the comments of the A4P Campaign as follows.

1, AUDIT OF REGISTER FOR ELIGIBILITY

The Audit was conducted based on presence in the Register used for the last internal elections. In line with the Directive of the General Secretary, no changes are to be made in the Register until the next round of internal Party elections.

UPPER EAST REGION

The Regional Research and Elections Officer, Edward Naabil (deceased) has been replaced with Daniel Ziba-Appointed.

Given that the General Secretary specifically stated that the Register used for the last National Elections is not to be touched, the appointment in replacement of the late Naabil, is an anomaly requiring explanation.

CENTRAL REGION

Mfantsiman Chairman, Gibrine Adams (deceased) and Founding Member Kwasi Kyere, also deceased, remain in the Register but the names are not eligible to vote.

VOLTA REGION

Per the rules, it is improper that the deceased Adaklu Constituency Chairman Shapah Seth, has been replaced with the Adaklu Constituency 1st Vice Chairman Amegboe. Therefore, the 1st Vice Chairperson is not eligible to vote.

ASHANTI REGION

The 2nd Regional Vice Chairperson Victoria Nyarko Kusi has been duplicated as Victoria Owusu-Achiaw, re-designated in the same Album as Regional Representative to National Council. The identity needs to be streamlined.

National Executive Committee

The Chief of Staff (CoS) has been listed to vote under the category of NEC. However, per the Constitution, the Office of CoS is not part of the NEC. Therefore, the Hon. Chief of Staff is not entitled to vote.

CHAIRPERSONS OF STANDING COMMITTEES OF NATIONAL COUNCIL

There must be clarity on the eligibility status of appointed chairpersons of Committees of National Council.

SCANNING FOR ELECTRONIC PHOTOGRAPHIC DEVICES

Specific responsibility for scanning for electronic devises to be vested in the Police Service.

A4P would be grateful to have the above taken into account.

Please accept my best regards.

Nana Ohene-Ntow
Head of Elections Planning & Management
