The Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abrem (KEEA) constituency executive of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has stated that it has elected and endorsed the current District Chief Executive, Mr Stephen Nana Ato Arthur, as the only candidate to contest the seat on the ticket of the party.
A release issued by the constituency secretariat by nine executive members, including the Constituency Chairman, Mr Ebenezer Agyemang-Kessie, indicated that the constituency branch of the NPP was currently not in an alliance or pact with any person or political party to contest the seat.
It said rumours that the elected parliamentary candidate for the constituency was stepping down for Dr Paa Kwesi Nduom, the Minister of Energy, were “ without any foundation, tinged with malicious propaganda”, adding that the minister is not a member of the “Great Osono Party”.
“The party is informing the general public that anyone who indulges in any arrangement, negotiations, or connections whatsoever with anyone outside or inside the party in the KEEA Constituency in the name of the party does so at his or her own risk,” it stated.
The release said the party would soon announce a vigorous campaign programme for the constituency to ensure victory for both President J. A. Kufuor and Mr Arthur in the December elections.
