New Patriotic Party (NPP),the opposition new party seems to be endorsing the ‘uncivilized’ comments of its Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin North Kennedy Ohene Agyapong against the chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC) Madam Charlotte Osei.

Deputy Communications Director of the party Anthony Abayifa Karbo insists the EC Chair was appointed in exchange for sex indicating that the loud-mouth legislator does not speak for the NPP and as such, his comment does not represent the party’s position.
At a campaign launch of colleague MP for Asokwa Madam Patricia Apeagyei , Kennedy Agyepong descended into the galleries when he alleged that Madam Charlotte Osei did not secure her position based on competence and merit.
Agyapong said some highly placed officials in government told Osei to “bring your buttocks in exchange of EC Chair position.”
He also said; ‘if indeed Nana Addo (the party’s running mate) wins according to the pink sheets and Charlotte Osei dares to rig the elections by twisting our arms in favour of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), we will not allow it to happen in Ghana.”
Anthony Karbo on Tuesday insisted that in as much as he opposes such attacks on women, he disagrees with such calls for the NPP to speak on the matter.
“I don’t think the party needs to come into this matter and I don’t think the party will go into this matter…the party shouldn’t. I don’t have evidence to what Ken is alleging, maybe he has. The media must call him and demand of him the evidence he has to his allegation. He may well be able to produce it. When the NDC’s Halidu Haruna said unmarried women above 30 years are prostitutes the party was out there supporting him. When Ursula Owusu suffered verbal attacks no highly placed woman in government such as Gender Minister, Nana Oye Lithur said a word about that.”
