NPP settles on October 18 for special congress.

The New Patriotic Party says it has penciled 31st August, 2014 as the date for its Special Delegates Congress to elect the first five of the seven persons who have filed to contest the party’s Presidential Primaries.

“The Special Congress will be held at Regional Centres in all the ten Regions of Ghana. The Party Headquarters at Asylum Down in Accra will also be designated as a Polling Center for some categories of voters,” a statement issued by the party, signed by General Secretary Kwabena Agyei Agyepong, said on Thursday.

The statement said the decision was taken at the Party’s National Council meeting held at the Alisa Hotel on Wednesday, July 16.

“The Council has also scheduled 18th October for the Presidential Primaries to be held in all the 275 constituencies simultaneously. Further guidelines will be communicated in due course,” it said.

The statement further explained that the five Standing Committees of the National Council, namely Finance, Organisational, Constitutional, Research and Disciplinary were duly constituted, while the party’s Vetting Committee was also put in place.
It said Regional Officers updated the Council on the state of the party’s preparedness on the upcoming registration exercise.

Furthermore, Party Officers, MPs and key stakeholders of the Party are requested to take the upcoming voter registration exercise seriously and to ensure that most of our members and supporters who have attained the voting age patronise the registration exercise, the statement said.
