CPP’s Infamous Trio Invited For Questioning

CPP’s Infamous Trio Invited For Questioning
Monday, 30 January 2006

The Disciplinary Committee of the Convention People’s Party (CPP) will tomorrow give audience to the three dismissed Members of Parliament (MP’s), Dr Kwesi Nduom, Mr Freddie Blay and Mr Kojo Armah for questioning.

Sources close to the party say that the three MPs have already been invited and it is most likely that they would show up at the party headquarters. The central committee of the party referred them to the Disciplinary Committee after a two-day meeting in the Ashanti regional capital, Kumasi.

Allegations against them include persistent acts of indiscipline; acts intended to bring the party into disrepute and violations of the party constitution. The three MPs are alleged to have attempted to stage a palace coup in the party without reference to procedures stipulated in the party constitution.

Mr Freddie Blay has openly stated that he and others are preparing to found a new political party. He has also announced his intention to resign from the CPP and to contest bye-elections reports the Insight newspaper.

Dr Nduom is believed to be at the centre of moves to launch a new political party. According to the Insight even though he has denied his involvement, some persons who attended meetings with him insist that he was part of a group planning to launch a new political party.

All three MPs openly campaigned against the CPP presidential candidate in the last elections and for the Presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr J.A Kufuor. Party insiders say Mr Kojo Armah is most likely to get off with a reprimand in view of the fact that he is not involved in the formation of the new political party.
Article 77 of the CPP constitution confers the powers to impose sanctions on party members who violate the constitution. The sanctions include expulsion.
