The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) is set to conduct parliamentary primaries in 111 orphan constituencies throughout Ghana.

The National Secretariat of the NPP, in a statement released on November 23, 2023, highlighted the implementation of protocols designed to uphold the integrity and fairness of the electoral process.

Emphasizing continuity and efficiency, the party has advised constituency parliamentary election committees to utilize the same locations that were employed during the recently concluded presidential election.

However, the chairman of the party, Mr. Stephen Ayesu Ntim has said the party is now poised for a successful conduct of their parliamentary primaries for some orphan Constituencies.

Speaking to the media at the party headquarters, Chairman Ntim emphasized the need for a successful conduct of the parliamentary primaries which is crucial to the party’s quest to retain power in the 2024 general elections.

“I am pleased with how we conducted ourselves in the Presidential primaries. The party is united and getting ready for election 2024. Our attention now is on a series of parliamentary primaries we will be conducting. We need to be united in order to maintain the seats we have and also add on. To this effect, this process is crucial for our forward march to victory as a party and we would make sure the right things are done.

“I would want to assure all the members of the Party that we would also have successful Parliamentary primaries on Saturday 2nd December. Based on the structures and guidelines we have put in place, we are certain of free and fair elections. I am appealing to all delegates and candidates to discharge of their duties honorably while respecting and abiding by the procedures and processes that we have put in place to ensure free and primaries,” Mr. Ayesu stated.
