Koku Anyidoho congratulated the leadership of the party as well as the winners and losers, an reminded them of the greater battle ahead.
He said the major focus should be the race in 2020. He believes the party stands the greater chance should party members unite their front in 2020.
On the issue of allowing some candidates to have gone unopposed, he said the party works with rules hence when people express interest in contesting incumbent candidates, they have to be allowed.
He said the party changed its popular acclamation and imposition of candidates because members rose against it.
He indicated although it was good to protect some MPs, it was not a rule in the constitution saying ‘’when you are popular in parliament, you should also be popular in the constituency where you are an MP.
