"Former President John Kufuor has abstained from voting in Sunday’s super delegates’ congress "
Former President John Kufuor has abstained from voting in Sunday’s super delegates’ congress of the main opposition New Patriotic Party.
Kufuor’s Spokesman Frank Agyekum has told the media that his boss is abstaining so as to maintain his neutrality as an elder within the party.
Slightly less than 800 delegates are taking part in today’s voting, which will be used to reduce the number of flagbearer-aspirants from seven to five, per the party’s constitution, which provides that such a mini congress be held whenever there were more than five contestants vying for the slot.
Those contesting include two-time flagbearer Nana Akufo-Addo, former trade Ministers Alan Kyeremanten and Dr Kofi Konadu Apraku; former Information Minister Stephen Asamoah Boateng, former Attorney General Joe Ghartey and MPs Francis Addai-Nimoh and Kofi Osei Ameyaw.
An Electoral College of 141,000 delegates will subsequently elect one of the final five at a mega congress on October 18, 2014.Share your views
