The New Patriotic Party (NPP) says, the fate of the Member of Parliament for Fomena, Andrew Amoako Asiamah, will be decided by the National Executive Committee of the party should he consider re-aligning with the party.
Mr. Asiamah, who won the bid in 2016 to represent the people of Fomena on the ticket of the NPP, lost the 2020 NPP primaries to Philip Ofori-Asante.He defied the party to contest as an independent candidate but emerged victorious despite sustained campaigns by the party against him
With the NPP failure to retain a majority in Parliament, many have wondered if the only independent candidate to make it to Parliament would take sides with his old party.
But speaking in an interview , General Secretary of the NPP, John Boadu, said, the leadership of the governing party will decide whether to welcome Mr. Asiamah back to the fold.
“He still insists that he is a party member but by his actions, he forfeited his membership. He can reapply, he can decide to join us. It is not a decision that can be taken by another body on the National Executive Committee. It is early days yet but if he clearly shows up to join the party, we will take him through the process and see what can be done about it”, he explained.
