The ongoing parliamentary primaries of the New Patriotic Party are crucial for its forward march, the governing party’s national chairman Stephen Ntim has said.
Speaking to the media at the party headquarters, Mr Ntim said: “I am pleased with how we conducted ourselves in the presidential primaries. The party is united and getting ready for the election of 2024. Our attention now is on a series of parliamentary primaries we will be conducting."
"We need to be united to maintain the seats we have and also add on".
“To this effect, this process is crucial for our forward march to victory as a party and we would make sure the right things are done".
“I would want to assure all the members of the Party that we would also have successful Parliamentary primaries on Saturday 2nd December. Based on the structures and guidelines we have put in place, we are certain of free and fair elections".
“I am appealing to all delegates and candidates to discharge their duties honourably while respecting and abiding by the procedures and processes that we have put in place to ensure free primaries”.
Today's polls are to elect parliamentary candidates who will represent the party in the 2024 general elections in constituencies whose current MPs are from the opposition party
