NPP to conduct regional executive election May 27 to 29
The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) will conduct its regional elections from May 27 to May 29, 2022, Evans Nimako, Director of Elections, has disclosed.
It would be the precursor to the national executive elections of the party in readiness for the 2024 presidential and parliamentary polls.
According to Mr Nimako, picking of nomination forms will start next week.
“Once the album is ready, the processes are open, nominations will start next week. If anybody feels aggrieved, the legal committee is ready to set in,” he told the Ghana News Agency in an interview in Accra.
Mr Nimako’s indication comes on the back of the election of executives in 255 of the 275 constituencies between April 28 and May 2.
Tough the polls were characterised by misunderstanding and pockets of chaos in some constituencies, Mr Nimako described the election as successful.
“The NPP is very pleased with the conduct of the constituency delegates’ conference, which got our officers elected. The party is happy and we acknowledge the role played by the Ghana Police Service, the Electoral Commission of Ghana and the media.
“For us, it is a victory for the NPP because all those who were eligible went through the process. The party has been able to elect officers to execute the 2024 agenda,” he said.
According to Mr Nimako, all outstanding issues with the remaining 20 constituencies would be addressed in due course.
“People who were dissatisfied sent in their concerns and their issues were resolved. But I must add that, there are a few ongoing ones.
“It is hoped that once the committee has submitted its report, further action will be taken to enable those constituencies to hold their conferences to elect their constituency officers as well,” he assured.
