The National Democratic Congress (NDC)‘s Members of Parliament (MPs) who lost the party’s parliamentary primaries and still contesting as Independent Candidates have been stripped of their membership and yanked from the party.
The aggrieved MPs incurred the wrath of the party after several calls to rescind their decision in order not to create divisions within the party failed.
In a statement signed by the General Secretary of NDC, John Asiedu Nketia, the decision to go independent is in breach of the party’s constitution.
The statement added that party members who campaigned, openly associate themselves with their campaign activities, and endorsed their nomination forms suffer the same punishment.
