Evans Nimako, the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Director of Elections, has described the party’s continuing screening of parliamentary contenders in seats nationally with existing legislators as “largely successful.”

The screening process, which is set to conclude on Friday, January 5, 2024, began on Wednesday, January 3, 2024.


The screening comes before of the party’s parliamentary primaries, which are scheduled on January 7, 2024.

When asked to discuss the vetting process thus far in an exclusive interview on the Asaase Breakfast Show, Nimako remarked, “It has been very smooth; not too many issues have come up.”

He added, “We are looking at constituencies numbering 134, you know, we have 137 constituencies where we have sitting members of Parliament but three of them are not participating.”

Concerning allegations of property attacks at the party’s Bimbilla headquarters following Alhaji Razak’s disqualification, Nimako stated that the perpetrators will face the law
accordance with the party’s rules.

“Those who have attacked the party’s office will have to face the law, prospective candidates must know how to seek redress for their concerns,” he said.

“The gentleman in question will have to go through other engagements with the party to ascertain the full development, and as we speak the responsibility lies with the vetting committee to furnish the party with the details,” Nimako added.

Generally, 23 applicants in the ongoing process went unopposed.
