The New Patriotic Party (NPP), has deferred all constitutional amendments proposed at the 25th annual delegates’ conference of the party at Cape Coast, the Central Regional capital at the weekend.

A resolution adopted by the conference requested that, “An extraordinary National Delegates Conference be held to consider all proposed constitutional amendments in terms of the motion moved and carried today (Saturday).”

It also stated the need for the party to work diligently in assisting government to achieve the laudable and patriotic objective of the government led by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

“The party shall protect and promote its good name and unity as well as continue to be loyal and faithful in publicly upholding the decisions of the party.

The resolution indicated the party’s resolve to provide the platform to strengthen the relations and communications between the party and government in order to deliver the promises in the manifesto as well as other government programmes and projects.

It further said: “The party shall strengthen its structures and organisational machinery at the polling station, electoral area, constituency, regional and national levels to maintain its formidable and conquering state.

The resolution affirmed the party’s support to the efforts of government in rescuing and restructuring the National Health Insurance Scheme.

“The party fully supports the institutional, legislative and other reforms being pursued by the government to fight corruption,” it said.

The resolution also reiterated the commitment of the party to fully engage the government in order to achieve the laudable flagship programmes which include: Free Senior High School (SHS), building a strong economy, infrastructure for Poverty Eradication Programme (IPEP), Planting for Food and Jobs, establishment of Zongo Development Fund, Railway Development, creation of new regions and the protection of the environment among others.
