The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has set November 4, 2023, for its presidential primaries to elect a flagbearer for the general elections in 2024.
This comes after the National Executive Committee (NEC) and the National Council held meetings on Monday, April 3.
A statement signed by the party’s general secretary, Justin Kodua Frimpong, said that the party will hold a special conference on August 26, 2023, if there are more than five presidential aspirants.
That special conference will reduce the number to a maximum of five candidates.
The nomination period for the presidential primaries will begin on May 26 and end on June 24, 2023.
The party has also announced that its parliamentary primaries will be held in February 2024.
For the parliamentary primaries, nominations will be accepted between December 20, 2023, and January 4, 2024.
