Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, has revealed that two presidential aspirants will not vote in the on-going primaries.
According to Ampofo, Goosie Tanoh and Nurudeen Iddrisu cannot vote in the NDC primaries.
Ampofo disclosed that the two aspirants do not meet the party's voting criteria, thus will not be allowed to vote.
He explained to the media that the two cannot vote because they have never held any official position in the party to warrant them a delegate status.
"One should have served as a branch, constituency or regional executive member; or served in the previous NDC government as a minister of state, DCE, MP or an Ambassador," he stressed.
"If you don’t fall into any of the categories you cannot vote. So, they don’t have voting rights," he added.
Ofosu Ampofo said that the law preventing the two delegates is enshrined in the Constitution of the party.
Goosie Tanoh and Nurudeen Iddrisu are competing against John Mahama, Joshua Alabi, Alban Bagbin, Ekow Spio Gabrah and Sylvester Mensah.
The six aspirants are seeking the mandate of delegates to lead the NDC into the 2020 general elections.
Aside the two aspirants who will not vote, reports reveal that the remaining four aspirants have been cleared to vote.
Joshua Alabi however had a challenge voting today when his name was purportedly not found in the register.
After some consultations with election officials, Joshua Alabi was allowed to vote.
Meanwhile aspirant, John Mahama who is tipped to win the primaries has successfully cast his vote in Bole.
