The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has scheduled 20 June 2020 to hold its parliamentary primaries in the 168 constituencies where the party has sitting MPs to elect its parliamentary candidates for the December general elections.

The party has also resolved to acclaim the sole candidate who had filed his nomination to contest in the presidential primaries, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, as its 2020 presidential candidate.

These decisions were taken by the party at National Executive Committee (NEC) and National Council meetings jointly held on Wednesday, 3 June 2020 at the Alisa Hotel in Accra.

“The date for the acclamation of the presidential candidate and his running mate will soon be communicated to the general public. Equally, the party will soon issue guidelines for the conduct of the parliamentary primaries,” the party said in a statement signed by its General Secretary John Boadu.

The party was forced to postpone its parliamentary primaries which were originally scheduled for April 25, 2020, due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic in the country.
