A political analyst, Boakye Yiadom, has indicated that the reasons cited by Alan Kwadwo Kyremateng for his withdrawal from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearership race are well established, judging by the conduct of the NPP Presidential Election Committee.
According to Mr. Yiadom, the frequent change of rules governing the conduct of the election and the response of the party to the attack of Alan’s agent at the North East Region during the superdelegates conference are clear indications that the process is being skewed against Mr. Kyeremanteng.
“Look at how they are changing the rules here and there. You said no one holding a top position can be a polling agent for a candidate; that was part of their regulations, and after the August 26 election, they came back to say anybody can be a polling agent. This is a recipe for disaster.”
“It was also part of their rules before the August 26 elections that when there is a tie, there is going to be a re-election involving all those who participated, but when there was a tie, they changed the rules to say only those at the top will decide, and that is why Boakye Agyako has withdrawn,” he stated.
This, the political analyst noted, indicates that the process has not been fair to some candidates and is only skewed to favour a certain candidate, as Mr. Kyeremanteng cited.
He said the recent happenings have a tendency to affect the party going forward, and there is a need for them to address the issues within the shortest possible time.
