The General Secretary of the governing New Patriotic Party, Mr John Boadu on Tuesday, 1st June, 2022 gave a postmortem report of what led to NPP’ s loss of Parliamentary seats in the 2020 Elections and who should be held accountable for those loses.
Mr John Boadu appearing as a guest on TV3′ s morning political show said ” It is true in 2020, yes we won the presidential but we lost great majority of our parliamentary seats. One thing that one must understand is that there are seats that are called borrowed seats.
For instance, in 2016 we snatched 55 seats from the NDC. Out of these 55 seats 23 of them we lost the Presidential” . According to him, the NPP lost a lot of Parliamentary seats in 2020 which shouldn’ t have been in the case.
He believes those seats lost has contributed to difficult situations government has been finding itself in Parliament due to the equal number of MPs the party has with NDC.
But who should be blamed for the several seats the NPP lost? According to John Boadu the NPP should be blamed because one thing about the party is that all decisions emanate from either the steering committee or the National Executive Committee or the National Council.
The General Secretary of NPP revealed that prior to Elections 2020, he himself knew some of these seats will be lost because of the trend and as predicted they were truly lost.
He said NPP were able to win some of the seats because NDC in those constituencies had a divided front with some going as independent candidate.
He couldn’t want to be a prophet of doom for his own party but the way things are going, he can’t predict that if the New Patriotic Party don’t unite and put their strength tiger, things will be difficult in 2024.
