The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) is currently preparing to elect its national executives and will hold such election from July 6-8 this year.
Ahead of the election, at least 40 aspirants who are vying for national leadership positions within the party have picked forms.

Five aspirants are vying for the National Chairmanship position.
They include acting chairman, Freddie Worsemawu Blay, Alhaji Abubakar Abdul-Rahman, Stephen Ayensu Ntim, Dr Richard Amoako Baah and David Kankam Boadu.

A total of 14 others are also vying for the party’s Nasara Coordinator position.

This was contained in a press statement signed and issued by the party’s acting Director of Research and Elections, Evans Nimako.

It announced May 28, 2018 as the date for the vetting of aspirants for the various executive positions ahead of the National Delegates Conference.

“The National Elections Committee, under the chairmanship of Most Reverend (Dr) Asante Antwi, in consultation with stakeholders of the party wish to publish for the notice of the public the names of aspirants who have filed their nomination to proceed to the vetting processes on the dates for their vetting,” the statement said.

Vetting for the National Nasara aspirants was slated for May 28, 2018, while National Organiser and National Women Organiser hopefuls are to be screened today, May 29, 2018.

The date for vetting for General Secretary and National Treasure aspirants will also take place tomorrow May 30, 2018.

Vetting of the National Vice and National Chair aspirants will take place on May 31 and June 1, 2018.

“All aspirants are hereby required to furnish the office of the Directorate of Research and Elections and Secretary to the National Elections Committee with all necessary and better particulars where appropriate,” the statement said.

Earlier, former Communications Director of the party, Nana Akomea refused to pick nomination forms explaining that he took such decision to allow other NPP stalwarts from the “non-Akan sub-group” to contest.

“When nominations opened l declined to pick forms because what was emerging was that this particular election may present the NPP with the most undiversified national leadership.

“Almost all the elected positions may be filled with people from the Akan sub-group and every effort must be made to ensure that some of the positions had elected members from outside the Akan sub-group,” Nana Akomea posted on his Facebook wall on May 13, 2018. –
