The Member of Parliament (MP) or Asawasi Constituency, Alhaji Mohammed Mubarakmuntaka is likely to go unopposed based totally on three factors the Daily Dispatch can define.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) throughout recently completed their parliamentary primaries ultimate Saturday August 24 at the price tag to stand the main opponents, New Patriotic Party (NPP) in 2020 general elections.
However the Asawasi constituency NDC Parliamentary elections changed into withheld on the basis the executives thought would possibly have erupted pandemonium.
But, the grounds are very favourable for Alhaji Muntaka to head unopposed on the following 3 motives Newstimesgh.com is expecting.
Support of the Ashanti NDC executives
The executives earlier on denied Mubarick Masawudu, Muntaka`s contender at the submission of nomination form to the party’s head office in Kumasi.
They locked up the office Atamakom at the final submission day but Mubarick Masawudu submitted it to the party’s headquarters in Accra.
The executives stated on many radio stations in Kumasi that Masawudu was unqualified to contest Muntaka.
The Ashanti NDC secretary, Mr. Kwame Zu on Luv FM in Kumasi, on his submission declared that the executives want Muntaka to go uncontested.
Indefinite suspension of Masawudu Mubarick
The Ashanti Region NDC executives headed by chairman, Augustus Andrews, Secretary Kwame Zu plus the Asawasi executives issued out a communiqué during Masauwudu’s nomination forms submission saga that he became suspended as of May 3 2019 following numerous cases of misconduct and abrogation of NDC constitution.
The statement said he was duly referred to the disciplinary committee for consideration pursuant to Article 46(2) of the NDC’s constitution but he (Mubarak Masawudu) refused to honor the committee’s invitation.
Yet, the ban has not been lifted. This as a result has narrowed Mubarak Masawudu’ chances to contest Muntaka and that automatically will permit the incumbent MP to enjoy monopoly in the primaries.
The fear of NPP’s Alhaji Alidu
The NDC Party Executives have an idea that a competent candidate must face NPPs Alidu who is big force and threat that NDC must reckon with at Asawsi in 2020 General Elections.
The NPP have said on severally that Alhaji Alidu is going unopposed in their impending primaries on September 28 this year. He came very close to the Asawasi seat in 2016, so they believe that to scrap away hitches of defeat in the forthcoming primaries, he must not be contended and the NPP can rock shoulders with NDC in the Asawasi seat race.
Similarly, the NDC think that since Alidu is a treacherous peril, it is likely any runner apart from Muntaka will possibly slack one of their historical seats to NPP in 2020 General Election.
So to facilitate their safe grounds, then they will not okay anyone to match Alhaji Muntaka.
