The National Executive Committee of the National Patriotic Party (NPP) has expelled its former Chairman, Senator James Biney of Maryland County, and also threatened to file a lawsuit against him.
In a release issued Friday, June 23, 2023, the party recounted that on Saturday, June 17, 2023, its National Executive Committee convened a National Executive Committee Meeting to deliberate on crucial issues of which said decision was made.
It added that the meeting focused on deciding the fate of Senator Biney whose conduct and utterances, according to the NPP continued to embarrass the party, noting that Sen. Biney has also been impersonating as Chairman of the party, thus making public declaration of support to opposition Unity Party.
The NPP said after long hours of deliberation, it was established that Senator Biney’s conduct runs contrary and counter-productive and in violation of section 2.9 of the party’s by-laws constitution.
According to the release signed by the NPP Secretary General, the body voted with over 2/3 majority to expel Senator James Biney from the party and thereby warned him to desist from making public utterances in the name of the party.
It added that any repeated act of such by him will lead the party with no alternative, but to seek litigation against him in a court of competent jurisdiction.
Meanwhile, Senator James Biney is yet to react to this latest decision taken against him by the National Patriotic Party – a constituent party within the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC).
