Supporters of the NPP stormed the party's office asking the leadership to rescind its decision to allow women contest women in its primaries.
Hundreds of supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) besieged the party’s head office in Accra calling on the National Executive Committee (NEC) to rescind its decision to allow women contest women in constituencies with women sitting Members of Parliament.
The party in a statement said, none of its 16 incumbent female MPs should be contested by men in the primaries scheduled for May this year.

The leadership however asked the supporters to calm down while they forward the petition to the appropriate quarters for redress.
Meanwhile, members some members of the NPP have stormed the office in Lower West Akim in the Eastern region over the same issue.
