The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Elections Committee announced that nationwide constituencies will host the party’s presidential primary on November 4.
Professor Aaron Mike Oquaye, the committee’s chairman, said there would be polling places in each constituency for the elections.
On November 4th, more than 200,000 NPP delegates will cast ballots to choose a presidential candidate for the 2024 election.
There will be free and fair elections, according to Professor Michael Oquaye.
“The Electoral Commission will also be fully in charge of the process, in fact, it’s going to be like any other national election. Every constituency, there will be a centre in it and for that matter, the EC will go about the process of conducting the elections. What this means in effect is that no authority, no party person will be part of the process of conducting the elections,” he said.
The criteria for the November 4 primary, which will be held at the Party Headquarters in Asylum Down, Accra, and all 276 constituencies nationwide, were announced by the party’s Presidential Elections Committee on September 22.
The guidelines delineated the protocols and regulations for the primary elections that would choose a presidential candidate for the general election of 2024, according to a statement released by the committee in Accra.
Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the vice president, Kennedy Agyapong, a member of parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Francis Addai-Nimoh, a former MP for Mampong, and Dr. Owusu Akoto Afriyie, a former agricultural minister, are the four candidates running for president.
