Pollster Ben Ephson says disqualified candidates of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) are engaging mafia tactics against the party
According to him, they are more dangerous than the individuals who have taken it upon themselves to contest as Independent candidates.
“What they have been doing is that since they [disqualified party members] have the backing of their constituents, they try to pollute the minds of their members against those of the newly elected members which makes it even deadlier than those going independent.”
“They would prefer working behind closed doors to undermine the power and authority of the party than to contest as an independent candidate and be evicted from the party,” they added.
To him, the NPP’s chances will be slimmer if they do not work at enforcing stronger ties between the party, Independent Candidates and people who were disqualified from contesting.
“They would prefer working behind closed doors to undermine the power and authority of the party than to contest as an independent candidate and be evicted from the party.”
He indicated that if the NPP wants to win, it’s imperative that the party asks their losing members to campaign with the candidates that won.
