The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has given the incumbent Member of Parliament for the Asawase Constituency, Muntaka Mohammed, the green light to represent the party in the 2020 parliamentary election. The follows the recommendation of the party’s Committee for settlement of outstanding disputes (the Doe Adjaho Committee) that handled petitions into the selection of NDC parliamentary candidates for the next general elections. The NDC held parliamentary primaries nationwide but the elections were put on hold in five constituencies including Asawase. The party later held the polls in four of the constituencies leaving Asawase where some NDC members had filed a petition to the National Executive Council of the party following their inability to file the nomination form of Masawudu Mubarick, the aspirant who is challenging the incumbent MP, Muntaka Mubarak. But the Functional Executive Committee (FEC) of the party in a statement issued on Tuesday said it has: “…..declared Mr. Massawudu Mubarick disqualified to contest the Asawase Constituency for the 2020 elections. By this decision, Hon. Mubarak goes unopposed and for that matter stands elected as the Parliamentary Candidate for the Asawase Constituency.” Meanwhile, the party says the two petitions relating to Asunafo South and Banda constituencies were amicably settled. A disgruntled Masawudu Mubarick had expressed concern that the posturing of some party executives indicates that they do not want him to contest, Muntaka Mubarak, who is the Minority Chief Whip in Parliament. His nomination forms were rejected at the constituency and regional level because of some pending disciplinary action against him. He found the regional office of the party under lock and key when he arrived at the premises on to file his nomination form back in July. Supporters of Mubarick Masawudu staged a protest at the NDC regional office in Kumasi where they burnt car tyres and posters of national executives and former President John Mahama. The NDC then has put in place a conflict resolution committee to resolve the impasse in the constituency. Source:Citinews.com
