The Member of Parliament for Kwabre East constituency, Kofi Frempong, says he is forming an association which will consist of all Members of Parliament (MPs) of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) who lost in last Saturday’s parliamentary polls.

According to him, the coming together of these MPs will help strengthen the party’s 2016 presidential candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo’s campaign.

“I am forming losers association of all the candidates who lost in the parliamentary polls to see how best we can marshal forces to strengthen Nana Addo’s campaign … criss-crossing in the regions for our party to come to power. In times like this, you realize that some of our members, especially, the MPs who lost, will lose hope and therefore would become very weak. However, with the formation of the association, it will mobilize all of them to vigorously join the campaign for victory in 2016.”

“When you lose an election that is not the end of you and the party. The party must move forward and that is why it is imperative for all of us to support in this direction,” he is reported to have told Kasapafmonline.com.

The NPP voted on Saturday, June 13, 2015 to elect parliamentary candidates in 245 constituencies for the 2016 elections. Twenty-five sitting MPs including Dr. Richard Anane, Dr. Afriyie Akoto, Joe Appiah, Kofi Frempong, Esther Obeng Dapaah and W.O Boafo lost their bids to contest in their respective constituencies.
