Philip Addison, a New Patriotic Party (NPP) aspirant contesting the Korley Klottey constituency seat in the party’s parliamentary primaries, said the party needed more seats to form majority in 2016.  He, therefore, appealed to delegates in
the impending primaries to vote for unifying candidates who could attract votes from supporters in the other political parties.

Mr Addison, who led the NPP legal team in the Election 2012 Supreme Court petition, emphasized that it was definite that the NPP would win the 2016 general elections, but the party would find it tough if it failed to form the majority in Parliament.

He was addressing constituency executives and some teeming supporters of the Party in the Nkoranza Municipality, when Ms Jacqueline Boatemaa Bonsu, a Parliamentary aspirant for the Nkoranza South Constituency, launched her campaign at Nkoranza.

Mr Addison noted that one of the greatest lessons the party had learnt from the 2012 election petition was that elections were won at the polling stations.

He reminded the delegates that they were responsible for activities at all the polling stations, and therefore indicated that for the NPP to ensure victory in 2016, every polling station executive ought to be conversant with all activities and do their work properly.

“You are placed at the polling stations as a guard and you ought to make sure that everything goes on smoothly”, he said.

According to Mr Addison, 2016 was going to be a great year for the party, and asked supporters and members to go closer and embrace especially defectors to ensure a landslide victory.

He observed that there were more opportunities for female Members of Parliament (MPs), and urged the delegates to vote for women contesting the primaries in the various constituencies.

Ms Bonsu stressed that regaining the Nkoranza south constituency seat for the NPP was not only her main concern, but she was also poised to ensure that the party won the presidential election as well.

She said it was also her priority to construct an ultra-modern market facility in the Nkoranza Municipality to boost the economic activities of women in the area.

Ms Bonsu noted with regret that because of the lack of storage facilities, large quantities of perishable crops, vegetables and fruits, such as mangoes, water melon and pineapples, went waste annually.

She stressed that the fortunes of the NPP would remain narrow if the party leadership failed to take proactive and responsible steps in addressing internal wrangling and factionalism.

According to Ms Bonsu, her position as the only female candidate among the five contestants in the primaries ought to inspire delegates to vote for her.
