NPP to open nominations in orphan constituencies on Tuesday

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) will from Tuesday, July 11 open nominations for parliamentary primaries in constituencies where the party has no representation.

The nomination will close on Thursday, August 10 with elections expected to be held from September to December.

The party indicates that male aspiring parliamentary candidates must submit a non-refundable filing fee of GH¢35,000 while women and persons with disabilities would pay 50% of the fee.

Aspirants have been urged to act according to the dictates of the party’s constitution and use the appropriate procedure to channel any grievances that may arise.

Setting a date for the party’s internal contests was marred by delays as the National Executive Council found it difficult to set a date for the elections and had to revise its initial calendar.
