The Disciplinary Committee of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) will soon decide on whether the Special Prosecutor nominee, Martin Amidu will be a member of the party or not.
This was revealed by the National Organiser for NDC, Kofi Adams, in an interview with Kofi Oppong Asamoah on the Morning Xpress on Radio XYZ.
His comments follow the posture of Mr Amidu on his membership during his vetting on Tuesday.
Mr Amidu could not affirm or decline his membership when asked if he was still a member of the NDC. He disclosed at his vetting that per his appointment into a public office, he ceases to be a member of any political party as the Supreme Court had already stated.
But Mr Adams contended that the Special Prosecutor has to officially write to the party to notify them about his resignation from the party per the NDC’s constitution.
“Our party constitution is clear on how one ceases to be a member. It’s either you’rre dismissed or you resign through writing,” he stated, adding that Mr. Amidu had not informed them he is leaving the party.
The Party is taking a disciplinary action against the former Attorney General to decide whether he remains in the party or not, according to the National organiser.
“If he’d be dismissed, then it would have been the conclusion of the disciplinary processes he is going through,” he said.
Mr. Martin Amidu insists he is a founding member of the National Democratic Congress but Mr Adams said the Special prosecutor engaged in gross “insubordination” and lied against his party and some members of the party while he was being vetted on tuesday, a situation the party has not taken lightly.
The disciplinary committee of the NDC has begun processes to determine what happens to Mr Amidu in the coming days and the party will depict it’s position on the matter in due time.
