NPP Second Vice-Chairman Sammy Crabbe has rejected an invitation to appear before the party’s disciplinary committee after two party members petitioned for his expulsion from the opposition party.
Sammy Crabbe has questioned the locus of the committee to hear him after he refused to recognise Freddie Blay's appointment as acting National Chairman. The elected chairman had been suspended indefinitely.
NPP members Boye Laryea and Gladys Tsotso Mann-Deddey in their petition say Mr. Crabbe "failed, neglected and abandoned his duties as a member of the party, and has fallen short of the standard required of national officers".
However, according to the former Greater Accra NPP Chairman, the National Council is the only and proper party organ that can hear a complaint against a member of the party’s National Executive Committee.
He quoted Article 4(3) (d)
A Member aggrieved by or dissatisfied with the conduct of any member of the Constituency Executive Committee shall file a complaint in writing to the Regional Executive Committee. A complaint against a member of the Regional Executive Committee shall be made to the National Executive Committee and in the case of the National Executive Committee to the National Council.
