The NPP’s committee responsible for overseeing the presidential elections has expressed its commitment to conducting a Saturday, August 26 election that is open, just, and clear.
The NPP has implemented effective measures to guarantee the success of the election.
Professor Michael Oquaye, who chairs the NPP Presidential Elections Committee, has stated that the steps taken to ensure the transparency of the voting process will result in an outcome that satisfies all parties involved.
He assured that any concerns raised by candidates have been addressed, demonstrating a commitment to democratic principles.
In case of any difficulties, individuals are encouraged to reach out to the committee secretary or the headquarters for prompt assistance.”
Ten individuals, including Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia, are contending for the leadership position within the NPP for the upcoming 2024 presidential elections.
During a balloting event on July 26, the ten candidates’ names were assigned positions on the ballot papers as follows: Ken Ohene Agyapong (position one), Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen (position two), Joe Ghartey (position three), Kwadwo Poku (position four), Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto (position five), Kwabena Agyei Agyapong (position six), Francis Addai Nimoh (position seven), Dr. Kofi Konadu Apraku (position eight), Boakye Kyeremanteng Agyarko (position nine), and Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia (position 10).
The super delegates conference scheduled for August 26 will result in a reduction of the number of contenders to five, facilitating the subsequent presidential primaries scheduled for November 4, during which a flagbearer will be selected.
Phones and cameras have also been banned by the party as part of stringent measures put in place ahead of the conference to avoid vote buying.
