The People’s National Convention (PNC), has condemned its National Chairman, Bernard Mornah, over his calls for the expulsion of Israeli Ambassador to Ghana, Ami Mehl, saying that is not a party position.
Mr. Mornah made the call following statements from the Ambassador describing Ghana’s vote against the US on making Jerusalem the capital of Israel as a ‘regrettable mistake’.
According to Mr. Mornah, the Israeli Ambassador had shown gross disrespect to the integrity of the President Akufo-Addo and the people of Ghana by his comments.
The statement said it was hopeful that Ghana will not repeat “such mistake” in subsequent motions before the General Assembly.
Speaking to Citi News, Vice Chairman of the PNC, Henry Asante, reprimanded Mr. Mornah and dissociated the party from the call.
He noted that any statement that comes from the party must be well-thought through and must be approved by the leader.
