In a letter dated September 9, 2018 and signed by the constituency chairman, Martin Andonye reads “With immediate effect, you have been suspended indefinitely from membership of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).’’
The letter continued that “Your suspension follows the outcome of the Disciplinary proceedings, following a petition brought against you by two (2) concerned members of the party in accordance with Articles 4 (3) (7) (a) (d) and 4 (5)(1) of the party’s Constitution.”
The outcome of the disciplinary proceedings against you is “ grounded on gross constitutional breaches, gross misconduct, insubordination and disrespect to elders, patrons and members of the constituency disciplinary committee, as provided for under Article 4 (7) 91)(a) (c) (f).
Article 3(7) (2) provides that “any decision to suspend a Member shall not be taken unless the nature of the complaint has been communicated to the member in writing, and disciplinary proceedings have been initiated against such member.’’
Meanwhile, the suspended former parliamentary candidate in a conversation with radioprogressonline.com said the decision to suspend him should be treated as contempt. He said he will respond to the allegations ‘bullet by bullet’ in due course.
