NPP National Executive Council to meet Today over planned primaries

The New Patriotic Party’s National Executive Council (NEC) is expected to meet today Tuesday, April 14, 2020 to decide on the way forward with the party’s presidential and parliamentary primaries.

The governing party had planned to hold parliamentary primaries in areas where it has sitting Members of Parliament scheduled on April 25,2020.

The presidential primary was also scheduled to take place on the same day. The President is expected to contest unopposed as he was the only one to have picked forms and submitted same as at Thursday, February 20, the deadline for filing of nominations.

But following the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic which is fast spreading, all public gatherings have been banned in the country by President Nana Akufo-Addo as part of measures to prevent the spread of the virus.

Due to this, the decision to hold the party’s primaries in a few weeks’s time is shaky.

The party has already held primaries for orphan constituencies; areas that did not have sitting Members of Parliament.

The decision will be made today whether or not to hold the primaries at the giving time.
