Ho, Oct. 20, GNA - A group calling itself concerned members of the Convention Peoples Party (CPP) in the Volta Region on Friday threatened a court action against the Party's leadership if it went ahead to reinstate Prince Ahiadzro, who had voluntarily resigned from his position of regional chairman of the Party. Mr Ahiadzro, who was elected in August 2003, reportedly resigned voluntarily in March this year in a letter addressed to the Party's national and regional executives. At a press conference in Ho, Mr Christian Zigah, spokesman of the group held that after resigning voluntarily and officially, the only means by which Mr Ahiadzro could get back into the position was through an election at the next regional delegates' conference. "No officer, not even the national chairman or organ of the Party has the power under the Constitution to reinstate or reappoint Ahiadzro as the Volta Regional Chairman," Mr Zigah said, adding that any such act would amount to usurping the Constitutional powers of the delegates. He said members of the CPP in the region would not allow any violation of their rights and appealed to committed members of the Party to prevail upon the national chairman and the central committee to rescind their decision to "impose" Mr Ahiadzro on them. Mr Zigah said his group had no intention to derail renewed efforts by the Party to win next year's elections, but should the executives go ahead to impose Mr Ahiadzro on members, it would have no other option than to take legal action against that decision.
