The United Front party has successfully endorsed its new flagbearer, Kwaku Owusu Antwi at a special delegates? congress held in Cape Coast in the Central region.

Confusion rocked the planned national delegates? congress following an earlier decision by the Central Regional Police command to halt the programme.

The police claimed the UFP did not have the permit to hold the event.

The party last month sacked its presidential candidate, Kwasi Addae, popularly called Odike for alleged corrupt practices and scheduled Saturday?s congress at the Cape Coast GNAT hall to endorse the candidature of one Kwaku Owusu Antwi.

The National chairman of the UFP, Nana Agyenim Boateng, said they defied the orders because they duly notified the police of the congress.

Mr. Agyenim Boateng could not understand why the police decided to interfere in the event, which he said was not an election but an endorsement.

He blamed the dismissed flagbearer, Kwasi Addae for having a hand in the latest fracas.

The UFP, a Kumasi-based political party, is believed to be receiving funding from the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC).
