The soap opera over the NDP nomination process in the Kenora-Rainy River Riding continues.

The NDP party is disputing a Fort Frances man's explanation for being denied the opportunity to run as a candidate for the party in the riding of Kenora-Rainy River.

Matt Soprovich says it was over various photos on his social media sites.

But the party says Soprovich failed their vetting process was because of multiple posts that glorified violence against women.

They say the decision to reject Soprovich was unanimous.
