NDC primaries: Hannah Tetteh, Ato Forson yet to be vetted

Foreign Affairs Minister, Hannah Serwa Tetteh, and a deputy Minister of Finance, Cassiel Ato Forson, are yet to be vetted by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for its upcoming parliamentary primaries scheduled for November 7, 2015.

The duo together with one other person, according to party officials, sought permission to absent themselves from vetting to enable them attend to some national duties.

Madam Tetteh, who is the incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) for Awutu Senya East and has submitted herself for re-election, was part of President John Mahama’s team that attended the UN Summit on Sustainable Development Goals in the United States of America.

Hon. Ato Forson, this website understands, was busily engaged with matters relating to the Eurobond the country is seeking to issue on the international market.

The third party, whose name was immediately not known, but was seeking to represent the party at the Assin North Constituency, was engaged in some international duties outside the shores of the country.

The date for their vetting is not known, but party officials are optimistic about doing it before the close of September 2015.

On Tuesday, September 22, 68 aspiring MPs in the Central Region were vetted to pave the way for the party’s parliamentary primaries scheduled for November 7, 2015.

Out of the number, three candidates were disqualified with two others yet to know their fate.
