As part of efforts to deal with the fallouts from last weekend’s NPP parliamentary primaries, the party has set up a conflict resolution committee to address concerns to be raised by anyone aggrieved.
The reconciliation efforts of the party will be led by the Chief of Staff, Madam Akosua Frema Opare.
This was disclosed by the party’s National Organiser, Sammi Awuku, in a media interview.
The committee, according to Mr Awuku, will commence work as soon as possible.
Mr Awuku stated that the exercise is to ensure that individuals who had issues during the primaries get the chance to voice them and also help resolve them for the progress of the party.
“Where we have people who are disgruntled, bitter and pained after the polls, the party has quickly activated its conflict resolution committee, chaired by the Chief of Staff, Madam Akosua Frema Opare, together with her team, to get to the ground to help us resolve these outstanding matters. There are processes for receiving the reports from the various regions and so the party leadership will sit down and evaluate it where we have issues,” he said.
So far so good
Meanwhile, the governing party has also commended its members and sympathizers for once again rising to the occasion and demonstrating maturity and candour their respective parliamentary primaries held over the weekend.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Monday congratulated the party for holding a successful parliamentary primaries.
“I congratulate the one hundred and sixty-eight (168) parliamentary candidates of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), who were elected in the exciting, competitive primaries of Saturday, 20th June, 2020, in constituencies where the party has sitting Members of Parliament,” the President said in a statement.
He also commended all party executives, delegates and aspirants “for the peaceful, credible, efficient and successful manner in which the elections were held, albeit, regrettably, with some breaches of the Covid-19 protocols in some constituencies.”
President Akufo-Addo added that the enthusiasm and camaraderie generated amongst party members are a clear indication of the collective commitment of the rank and file to retain power in the December 2020 polls.
