The Member of Parliament for Lambussie Constituency, Bright Bakye Yelviel Baligi has revealed that a significant number of his fellow MPs are hesitant to publicly endorse Alan Kyerematen’s bid for the presidency, as they fear potential repercussions in their upcoming primaries.
Expressing his concerns in an interview with journalists in Accra, Baligi suggested that many parliamentarians are afraid about openly supporting Alan Kyerematen due to the perceived risk of losing their seats.
This perceived threat is reportedly driving these MPs to remain silent or pledge allegiance to another potential candidate.
“People are afraid for their jobs, they fear being challenged in their constituencies. We are hearing about a list of MPs who have been targeted by an establishment to sponsor people to challenge them in their primaries and ensure that they don’t win. But some of us are not afraid of that.
I am prepared to sacrifice my seat today or tomorrow for Alan to become president. If Alan wins the primaries with less than 60%, I will be surprised,” said the NPP Member of Parliament for Lambussie.
