The long awaited New Patriotic Party (NPP) primary to elect a parliamentary candidate for the 2016 elections for the Ablekuma West constituency, which was suspended indefinitely due to chaos, is set to take place on Saturday, 9th April, 2015.

The election was delayed following confusion over the constituency’s voters’ register. Currently, three persons are in the race namely; the incumbent Member of Parliament, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, Roni Nicole and Teo Tetteh.

The poll is expected to end the disunity among the NPP members in the constituency who have been sharply divided.

Ghanamps.gov.gh understands that Theophilus Tetteh, a former Constituency Chairman who is a contender failed to turn up for the vetting.

But speaking to Kasapa FM’s, NPP Director of Elections Martin Adjei Mensah Korsah noted the there was a communication from the regional chairman Ishmeal Ashiettey indicating Mr. Tetteh had officially written to the party on his absence from the vetting.

He however said the committee is yet to receive the said letter and take a conclusive decision on his fate.

Meanwhile, Hon. Ursula Owusu Ekuful has expressed confidence of emerging as the Parliamentary candidate at the end of the poll, to enable her continue with her good works in the constituency.
