The Greater Accra regional chairman of the New Patriotic Party Ishmael Ashitey has hinted that the party would impeach party Chairman Paul Afoko and General Secretary Kwabena Agyapong if they fail to resign.

Regional Executives across the country have begun an impeachment process against the two party leaders they accuse of being divisive elements within the party.

A meeting in the Ashanti Region ostensibly to pass a vote of no confidence in the two members ended inconclusively with some Regional executives reported to have walked out of the meeting.

In an interview with Citi FM, he said if the two party executives fail to resign after a petition is presented to them, signatures would be collated from 40 percent of the delegates who voted for them to impeach them from office.

“If we want to remove them we would collect signatures of 40 percent of people who actually voted for them to start the process of impeachment, what we are doing now is not actually impeachment.

“We are only writing a petition to ask them to step aside to re-organize the party; it is when they refuse to step aside that we would activate the process of impeachment.”

He said "the unity of the party is below them (Afoko and Agyapong)."

"We need 40 percent of the people who actually put this people into office to ask for their resignation," he added.

Mr. Ashitey added that it would benefit the party in 2016 if Afoko and Agyapong step aside.

“It would be good for all of us, the party and they themselves for them to step aside”.
