An Accra High Court has dismissed an application filed by the second vice chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Sammy Crabbe challenging the constitutionality of his suspension by the party.
The court presided over by Justice Sir Dennis Adjei said the suit by Sammy Crabbe has no merit. he opined that the NPP’s national disciplinary committee has the power to hear and decide to sanction any member of the party who breached party rules.
Mr Crabbe was suspended by the national executive committee of the NPP after he failed to appear before a disciplinary committee of the party to answer misconduct charges levelled against him by two members of the party.

Meanwhile, lawyer for the defendants, Godfred Dame after the judgement told the media that from the court’s ruling it was clear the party did nothing wrong in punishing the second vice chairman.
"It speaks to one thing - that every member of the party is subject to the disciplinary rod of the party and no member of the party is above order of discipline in the party," he noted.
