Spread the love

The National Council of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has decided that the party will hold its conference to elect its flagbearer for the 2024 presidential elections in November 2023.

The Council also decided that the ruling party will conduct its parliamentary primaries to elect parliamentary candidates for constituencies where it has sitting Members of Parliament in January 2024.

The party in the 8th Parliament, has one hundred and thirty-seven (137) seats. The independent MP for the Fomena Constituency however works with the NPP Caucus, which brings the number of the majority caucus to 138.

The National Council reached these conclusive timelines at its meeting held at Alisa Hotel on Friday 23 December 2022.

On “orphan constituencies” (parliamentary seats occupied by the opposition), the National Council meeting could not decide on conclusive timelines, however, primaries to elect parliamentary candidates for such constituencies are largely expected to be held in April 2023.

There are currently one hundred and thirty-six (136) orphan constituencies with the exception of the Assin North Constituency seat which is technically vacant because of a Supreme Court injunction on the sitting NDC MP stopping him from holding himself as an MP. The case is however pending at the High Court.

Ahead of the National Council meeting, some NPP Members of Parliament advocated for the party’s presidential and parliamentary (sitting MPs) primaries to take place at the same time.

However, the National Council decided that the presidential primaries should take place in November 2023, 13 months to the 2024 elections, while the parliamentary primaries for sitting MPs take place in January 2024, 11 months to the general election.

 

Pending elections

The National Council in their deliberations directed that elections held in the Akwatia Constituency, from the polling station level through to constituency executives’ level, should be conducted all over again.

Concerning the Sunyani East Constituency elections, the National Council decided to constitute a committee to investigate how the elections were conducted at the constituency from the polling station upwards and to ascertain if indeed, the elections were held at all.
