"This position was confirmed at the Central Committee meeting held in Accra on 11th May, 2006 and communicated to the three MPs." The statement said in conformity with a court ruling early this month, the Central Committee 93unambiguously states that the three MPs were not dismissed.

"Rather, allegations of acts of indiscipline by the MPs were referred to the Disciplinary Committee for investigation. Following the decision of the Central Committee to reconcile its ranks further action on the matter was discontinued."
