The National Democratic Congress Member of Parliament for the Lower Manya constituency, Michael Teye Nyaunu has confirmed that he will contest as an independent candidate in the upcoming December polls.

The national leadership of the NDC has warned that any member who goes independent will be expelled from the party.

But, the outspoken MP, who has fallen out with the leadership of the NDC says he is not perturbed by being sanctioned by the party.

According to him, he is ready to face any sanctions that the party will mete out to him.

“I will be contesting as an independent candidate and will break away from the party” stressing that “I don’t care about the sanctions that will come from the party,” he told XYZ News in an interview.

Mr. Nyaunu earlier this year lost the NDC primaries to the Deputy Eastern Regional Minister, Ebenezer Teye Larbi.

After his defeat he accused the whole government machinery of resourcing the Mr. Teye Larbi. He declared his intention to explore other options and has finally decided to contest as an independent candidate.
