NPP continues election of 2016 parliamentary candidates

The opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) continues the election of its parliamentary candidates for the 2016 elections on Saturday, July 25.

Among the eight constituencies cleared to hold primaries on Saturday, July 25, a few have been injuncted once more.

Most notably Kwesimintsim in the Western Region and Okaikoi South in the Greater Accra Region may have the primaries rescheduled.

But the hotbed of activity on Saturday will be at the Tema West Constituency, where incumbent Irene Naa Torshie Addo is being challenged by Carlos Kingsley Ahenkorah and Adwoa Amoako.

The candidates have agreed to hold the primary at a neutral ground, Adjei Kojo School for the Deaf, after a decision on a venue nearly created trouble.

“Constituency Election Committees of these Constituencies are to liaise with the respective District Directors of the Electoral Commission for the selection of appropriate venues and to ensure the smooth conduct of the Primaries,” a statement issued by General Secretary Kwabena Agyepong on Wednesday said

The party held primaries for a majority of constituencies on June 13 with a number of incumbent MPs losing their slots.
