Some six polling station executives of the rulling New Patriotic Party in the Asante Juaben constituency in the Ashanti region have been suspended from the party for 21 days.
They were suspended for violating the party’s constitutional code of conduct.
The six were among a group of supposed members of the party who invoked curses on some national executives during a protest at Nabewam against 2nd National Vice Chairman, Fredrick Freduah Antoh.
The protests were held after the disqualification of their preferred parliamentary aspirant, Francis Owusu -Akyaw ahead of the party’s June, 20 parliamentary primaries.
The suspended polling station executives include Ransford Osei (Polling Station Secretary, Juaben Anglican JHS ‘A’), Yaw Owusu Collins (Polling Station Chairman, Juaben Court Yard 1(One), Owusu Tawiah (Polling Station Secretary, Bomfa United Primary School), Collins Obeng Berko (Polling Station Chairman, Bomfa United Primary School), Dickson Amoah (Polling Station Chairman, Nobewam M/A Primary School) and Charles Agyemang Boateng
(Polling Station Organiser, Bomfa United Primary School).
Below is a copy of the suspension letter
