Lawyer Philip Addison has been heavily
defeated in the New Patriotic Party (NPP)
primaries in the Klottey Korle constituency. Philip Addison polled 22 while his main
opponent, Nii Nortey polled 393 votes. Samuel James Nii Adjei Tawiah also polled 19
votes. Citi News‘ Franklin Badu Junior reported that over 200 delegates did not turn up to vote. Addison and Nii Tawiah earlier boycotted the election, saying the party had been unfair to them by taking a decision to hold the election
today [Sunday]. Mr Addison and his supporters were at the
NPP headquarters to protest as the election
process begun in the constituency. He subsequently in an interview with Citi News’
Franklin Badu Jnr declared: “I am boycotting
the election because it’s a sham. There is lack
of transparency so there is no confidence in
the process.” He has been facing a stiff challenge from his
major opponent, Nii Nortey who resigned as
the constituency chairman a few months
ahead of the election to contest.xcsf7ji775_lawyer_philip_addison
