The party’s decision for female incumbent MPs to contest unopposed didn’t hold as all the female MP’s in the region are being contested.

Ashanti Regional Organizer of the Party, Francis Adomako, disclosed that only one incumbent female MP is contesting unopposed among all the incumbent MP’s in the region.

He added, the party’s vetting exercise is likely to delay because of the independence day celebration and other party activates.

“You know on the 6th March, 2020 Kumasi will be hosting the national independence Anniversary celebration, on the 7th March we will be attending the Ashanti Regional Minister mother’s funeral, moreover our Chairman Wontumi has also traveled outside the country. Therefore, it will be very difficult for us to follow the national calendar for the vetting but we will do our best to organize the vetting without any trouble’’ he assured.

Mr. Adomako added’ the party has formed a three-member committee to be chaired by former Minister of Defence now board chairman of SSNIT, Dr. Kwame Addo Kuffour, Peter Mac Manu and Cecilia Abena Dapaah to address concerns of any aspirant who may have aggrievances when disqualified by the vetting committee.

“Know people will feel aggrieved when disqualified unfairly by the committee for unjustified reason so the party has formed a committee to receive all form of petitions to be sent to them for redress to avoid troubles in the party for a particular period be for the final official list of qualified aspirants will be made known to the public,’’ he revealed.

He, however, appealed to the prospective applicant to conduct issue-based campaign in order not to create tension in the party during and after the primaries.
