List of 23 NDC members expelled for going independent
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has expelled 23 disgruntled members who decided to contest the 2016 elections as independent parliamentary candidates.
A statement signed by the General Secretary of the party, Johnson Asiedu Nketia said the party took the decision because the candidates breached the party’s constitution with their actions.
Thus the NDC in a statement said, “the General Secretary acting on behalf of NEC wishes to inform the general public and especially all such persons that they are in breach of articles 8( d,f); 45( a,b,c &e) and 46(10) of the party’s constitution. The affected persons by their conduct and on their own volition have ceased to be members of the party,” the statement added.
The party further ordered the affected persons to desist from using party paraphernalia and also return any party property in their possession.
