The Alternative National Congress or ANC has announced that it would not field a candidate in Margibi County electoral district#5 for the October 10th polls.
District five is currently headed by incumbent House Speaker Representative J. Emmanuel Nuquay.
ANC Margibi Chairman, ex-senator Roland Cooper Kaine, made the disclosure during an interview with reporters in Weala on February 14, when the party carried out awareness on the current voter’s registration.
He said for several reasons, the party will not out forth a candidate in the district, but collaborate with candidates it believes could best serve the interest of the people of district five.
Chairman Kaine said as a political institution, the ANC has decided to be very definite with the district five’s situation, reiterating that the party will produce candidates in other districts that it deems necessary in Margibi, but District#5.
A least three aspirants have declared their intention to contest against Representative Nuquay in the October elections.
One of the aspirants Mr. Derrick Nyumah, has reportedly joined the Nuquay’s camp to ensure his re-election bid, the paper gathered recently in Weala.
