Dr Benjamin Kunbour and Ambrose Dery
A former Deputy Minority Leader in Parliament, Ambrose P. Dery, has mocked Defence Minister Dr Benjamin Kunbour for bowing out of the November 7 parliamentary primaries of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Mr Dery, who is optimistic of winning the Lawra seat in 2016 for the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), believes the minister chickened out because he would have eventually lost to him if he emerged NDC parliamentary candidate in the area.

The national youth wing of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), under the leadership of Sammi Awuku, has indicated its readiness to join the protest at the offices of the Electoral Commission (EC) on Wednesday, September 16, to press home the need for a new voter register before the 2016 general elections.
In a post widely circulated on the social media, Mr Awuku, the National Youth Organiser of the party, said the decision to join the protest, being spearheaded by pressure groups, Let My Vote Count (LMVC), Alliance For Accountable Governance (AFAG) and Movement for Change (MFC), is because a new voter register for 2016 borders on the very survival of Ghana’s democracy.
