Delegates in 12 constituencies will not have the opportunity to elect their candidates when the New Patriotic Party (NPP) holds its nationwide parliamentary primaries on Saturday.
The constituencies, which are spread across the Greater Accra, Western, Volta, Ashanti and Upper West Regions, are grappling with issues concerning the candidature of some of the aspirants.
Bia East, Bia West, Juaboso and Akontonbra, in the Western Region, would be excused from voting following a request by the regional executive of the party.
The party’s regional secretary, Charles Bissue, said the elections in these constituencies had to be suspended for strategic reasons. Also, delegates of the party in Nadowli Kaloe in the Upper West Region, and Nkwanta South in the Volta Region, would also not vote.
The party has put on hold, elections in Korle Klottey, Obam Domeabra, Manhyia North, Kumawu, Juabeng and Akrofuom.
