The New Patriotic Party (NPP) extends its heartfelt appreciation to all stakeholders who contributed to the successful execution of the Special Electoral College Election which took place on Saturday, August 26, 2023. We commend the collaborative efforts of the Presidential Elections Committee, the Electoral Commission, the Ghana Police Service, Media partners, aspirants, delegates, supporters, and the wider general public for their unwavering dedication to the democratic process.
We extend our congratulations to all aspirants and their supporters for their responsible conduct, following the guidelines, rules, and regulations set forth for the election. Your commitment to the democratic principles of the Party is acknowledged and celebrated.
While the majority of voting centers experienced a smooth process, we acknowledge that isolated incidents occurred at certain locations. The leadership of the Party unequivocally condemns such incidents and emphasizes our unwavering commitment to the integrity and fairness of the election process.
Pursuant to Article 10(7)(5) of the NPP Constitution, certain individuals namely;
- Mr. Raphael Patrick Sarfo
- Mr. Charles Dokyi Yaw-Addo
- Mr. Musa Sulemana
- Mr. Hopeson Yaovi Adorye
will be referred to the Party’s Disciplinary Committee. This is a direct response to evidence, including video and photographic materials, which suggest potential violations of the provisions outlined in Article 3(5)(A)(1)(2)(3) and (4) of the Party’s Constitution and a potential misconduct under Article 4(7).
Emphasis must also be placed on the fact that Hon. Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, pursuant to the afore-stated constitutional provisions of the party, will also be summoned before the Disciplinary Committee of the Party to provide responses and further details to the accusations and threats he made against certain personalities in a video that has since gone viral on social media and mainstream media.
The NPP remains committed to upholding democratic values, accountability, and the highest standards of conduct. We are confident that this disciplinary process will be conducted with fairness, transparency, and impartiality.
