NPP primaries: Subin MP wins despite EC boycott


Sitting Member of Parliament for Subin Constituency, Eugene Boakye Antwi, won the New Patriotic Party (NPP) primaries for the second time in an election the Electoral Commission failed to supervise.

The Commission’s absence is due to an injunction secured by some delegates of the constituency and served on the EC.

With support from the Regional Executives, party executives in the area had to oversee the elections in the absence of the contender Joseph Boakye Danquah.

The party chairman in the constituency led party supporters mainly delegates to lift the hands of the incumbent MP in victory. This was after he polled 485 votes against 166.

On Friday, a court injunction was granted 50 delegates restraining the party from conducting the elections.

According to party sources, the Electoral Commission and other interested persons were rightly served, hence the refusal of the EC to show up for the elections.

Even though the contender, JB Danquah claims to have no knowledge of the injunction, he was partly in support of the injunction.
