Following the political brouhaha between an aggrieved faction in the Peoples Movement for Democratic Change (PMDC) and the party’s leadership, the Political Parties Registration Commission (PPRC) made a prompt intervention to reconcile the aggrieved faction and the party’s leadership.
The Acting chairman of PPRC, Mr. Roland Ade Caesar expressed his unreserved disappointment and dissatisfaction about the blatant failure of the PMDC’s leadership to settle their differences In-House and inform the PPRC about the outcome as was agreed in the previous meeting between the two parties and the PPRC.
The PPRC Acting Chairman considered the act as a disregard to the relevance of the PPRC which has a constitutional mandate to supervise the conduct of political parties.
The PPRC on Tuesday 21st July held a meeting with the two belligerent parties after the aggrieved faction bitterly reported to the commission the electoral malpractices and administrative irregularities which the leader and the National Executive Council had embarked on during the conduct of the Constituency, District and Regional elections country wide.
The meeting held on Tuesday did not in any way serve as a panacea to the problems of the aggrieved faction. However, for the sake of progress ahead of the convention, the following resolutions were agreed upon by both parties;
ª% That both factions attend the delegate conference as proposed.
ª% That all aggrieved matters be resolved by both factions for the unity and peace among
ª% That after the convention the parties hold a meeting with the PPRC reporting the outcome of their deliberations.
ª% That the outcome of this meeting will be a final settlement of the disputed between the factors.
