Political analyst, political watcher and researcher, Owusu Ansah William, has predicted that the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), will use some tactics to prone down the number of persons who have expressed interest in contesting the presidential race of the party.
The analyst stated that the constitution of the party limits the number to five, and currently more than five persons have expressed interest.
Hr was optimistic the five would include Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, Alan Kyeremanten, Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, Kwabena Agyei Agyapong and Kennedy Agyapong.
”These are the five persons who will qualify to contest the presidential slot in the NPP. The party will find ways and means to disqualify all the others,” he told host Kwabena Agyapong on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm.
About ten individuals have expressed interest in contesting the presidential race and they include Boakye Agyarko, Joe Ghartey, among others but the analyst says the five he had earlier mentioned will sail through.
