Some two individuals have been disqualified from contesting in the National Democratic Congress’(NDC) upcoming parliamentary primaries in the Volta Region.
The two are Paul Mensah Voegborlo, who wanted to contest in the Keta Constituency and William Mawuli Ahado who wanted to contest in the North Tongu constituency.
They failed to meet the requirements for qualification to contest in the race.
The Volta Regional Communications Director for the NDC, Kafui Agbleze explained that “Mr Voegborlo held a party card from a different region from the Volta region, breaching a party constitutional regulation”.
Mr Ahodo was ready to challenge incumbent MP Samuel Okujeto Ablakwa, who is seeking reelection, but was disqualified because he had not been with the party long enough in the North Tongu Constituency to satisfy the four-year minimum membership requirement to contest for parliament on the ticket of the NDC.
So far 60 aspirants have been given the green light to contest in the primaries at the end of the vetting at the NDC’s regional party office in Ho.
74 persons initially picked nomination forms but not all of them filed their forms.
