The National Secretariat of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has announced the protocols governing the conduct of its parliamentary primaries scheduled for Saturday, January 27, 2024.
In a press statement dated January 22, 2024, the party indicated that the protocols had been formulated to ensure the integrity and fairness of the electoral process.
“There will be one voting centre in each constituency nationwide. However, in constituencies where there are many delegates, the Electoral Commission (EC) may create additional polling stations at the centre to ensure a speedy process. All stakeholders are kindly entreated to comply with these provisions to ensure a smooth and transparent process,” it stated.
It said the EC would supervise the conduct of the elections and shall have the full responsibility of ensuring a transparent, free, and fair election.
“No person, whether a government appointee, party official, or otherwise, shall act in contravention of the Electoral Commission and these guidelines.”
“Security activities rest exclusively with the Ghana Police Service, and access beyond security perimeters is restricted to delegates, persons appointed by the National Secretariat and Region as election supervisors, contestants, and their accredited agents,” it stated.
