The Functional Executive Committee (FEC) of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has given the Minority Chief Whip the green light to contest the 2020 Parliamentary election in Asawase unopposed.

His contender Masawudu Mubarick had been declared disqualified to contest on the ticket of the party.
This follows the acceptance of the decision of the report of the Committee on settlement of outstanding disputes.

The committee is headed by former Speaker of Ghana’s Parliament Rt. Honorable Edward Doe Adjaho, whose report was presented to (FEC) at a meeting on Tuesday the 3rd of September, 2019.

The Doe Adjaho Committee was established to handle petitions emanating from the vetting process leading to the selection of Parliamentary candidates of the party in the 2020 Presidential and Parliamentary elections.

Three of the petitions from the aggrieved aspirants including Masawudu were referred to the committee.
While two of the petitions relating to Asunafo South and Banda constituencies were amicably settled, the other aspirant at Asawase was disqualified. By this decision Muntaka Mubarak stands elected as the Parliamentary Candidate of the NDC in Asawase Constituency.

This was contained in a press release signed by General Secretary of the Party Johnson Aseidu Nketiah.
