The National Council of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is expected to decide on timelines for Flagbearer and Parliamentary elections.
Earlier reports set November 2023 for election of the Party’s Presidential Candidate, January 2024 to elect Parliamentary Candidates for Constituencies with sitting NPP Members of Parliament (MPs) and April 2024 for constituencies without sitting NPP MPs.
However, in a Statement, the NPP said timelines for the internal polls were yet to be concluded. It added that at the National Council’s last meeting, it was unable to finalize discussions on some proposed dates for the conduct of the primaries.
Consequently, the National Council resolved to defer a decision on the matter to allow for further stakeholder engagements in the interest of the party.
Meanwhile, the meeting scheduled for Thursday, February 2, 2023 will enable the National Council to take a final decision regarding the timelines for the conduct of the Party’s Presidential and Parliamentary Primaries.
