The Second Vice Chairman for Suame Constituency of New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Richard Asante, has called on the leadership of the various political parties to put in place measures to prevent payments of money during their internal elections.
According to him, such payment, has the tendency to corrupt victorious leaders when given the power in future.
Speaking to the media, Mr Asante, disclosed that all political parties are guilty of such unfortunate act and could restrain them from electing qualified candidates to lead their parties.
“Internal elections of the various political parties are centered on ability to pay to buy votes. Such monecracy will affect Ghana’s democracy” Mr Asante said
He noted that such behavior seeks to prevent poor persons who have tirelessly worked for the parties, from holding positions due to their inability to ‘buy’ votes.
Mr Asante therefore asked delegates of the ruling party to vote for persons who have the capacity to help the party to ‘break the eight’ in the 2024 general elections.
