Some executives of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) schemed to tilt the result of the NDC parliamentary primary for the Chiana-Paga constituency in favour of the eventual winner, Mr Abuga Pele, the defeated NDC aspirant for the constituency has alleged.

He lost the primaries over the weekend to Rudolf Amega-Etego, who polled 4,337, beating Mr Pele, who managed to poll 4,177.

Mr Pele said in relation to the primary that: “There were a lot of impediments against me, some of the party executives…unfortunately, did not want to see my face in the election. [They] even tried as much as possible to get me out of the way. When I had done all my home work well and we were about to vote, they decided to postpone the elections on three occasions for no reason. Before we realised, a lot of money was pumped into the constituency and monies were distributed for people to vote against me. Also some paramount chiefs were seen using their vehicles to pick voters to vote against me.”

He, however, dispelled rumours that he is going independent in the up-coming parliamentary election.

“I have never said I will go independent if I lose this election. On the contrary, I have been telling people that there is the need for all of us to accept the results of an election and for all of us to work together and win the seat to assist the president to secure a second term in office.

“So, for anybody to say that I am going independent is not true. I do not subscribe to the idea of going independent. It is not the best and I know the consequences of going independent. It is not fair and does not allow party unity unless it becomes very necessary. That is only when my people say they are not happy with the way events went and I talk to them and they insist I should go independent then I have no choice but to do what they want. But I don’t foresee any possibility of all that people are saying”, Mr Pele told Citi FM.
