Three NPP activists arrested for misconduct
Kumasi, June 13, GNA - The Zongo Police in Kumasi have arrested three activists of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for misconduct.
They accused of disrupting the electoral process at the Subin Constituency at the on-going NPP parliamentary primaries.
Superintendent Nyamekye Adane-Ameyaw, Zongo 'B' District Police Commander, told Ghana News Agency that the culprits, whose names he did not disclose, have been placed in police custody.
In all 656 delegates are expected to cast their ballots in the constituency.
According to the police, the culprits wielding placards and amid deafening noise were campaigning suggesting to the delegates to vote for a particular candidate at the elections venue, a practice which breached the electoral laws.
Supt Adane-Ameyaw said the culprits would be arraigned after police investigations.
Four candidates, including the incumbent Member of Parliament Mr Isaac Osei, Eugene Boakye-Antwi, Frederick Duodu and J.B. Danquah, are seeking the mandate of the people.
The Police Commander warned that his outfit would not countenance any sort of indiscipline that has the potential to disrupt the elections, calling on the delegates and NPP activists to comport themselves.
