Asante Akyem NPP parliamentary primary suspended

The New Patriotic Party has suspended the parliamentary primary in the Asante Akyem North Constituency in the Ashanti Region following a court injunction.

Some of the delegates filed for the injunction arguing that their names have been removed from the register for the elections.

The incumbent Member of Parliament for the area, Andy Appiah Kubi is contesting the seat with Kwadwo Baah Agyemang.

Mr Kubi defeated Baah Agyemang in the last primary to enter the Legislative House.

Baah Agyemang is bent on snatching his seat back and the constituency has been labelled as one of the hotspots.

The National Organiser, Mr Sammy Awuku confirmed on Friday morning that the primary in the Asante Akyem constituency has been suspended following the court case.
