NPP finalizes list for Special Delegates Congress

The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), is currently putting the finishing touches on the list of individuals who will take part in the Special Delegates Conference on August 26, 2023.

The major responsibility of the delegates is to narrow the field of presidential hopefuls down to five individuals in advance of the congressional vote in November that will determine who will run for president in the elections of 2024.

“At this point, we are in the process of putting together the compilation. According to what I can recall off the top of my head, we are not going to go over a thousand, which means that the special electoral college will be comprised of between 900 and 1,000 delegates.

“When you talk about the founding members, some of them have passed away, so we have to take their names out, and again, we also have to look at prior national officers who have also passed away, so we are trying to organise those things.

When you talk about the founding members, some of them have died, so we have to take their names out. I am certain that we should have the final list for the election of special delegates in hand by this coming weekend,” he continued.
