The New Patriotic Party (NPP) finds itself grappling with legal intricacies as it braces for parliamentary primaries in constituencies with existing representation.
However, the electoral landscape takes an unexpected turn as the party announces the suspension of primaries in four constituencies due to ongoing court processes.
In an interview monitored by newsandvibes.com on Citi FM’s Eyewitness News, Haruna Mohammed, the Deputy General Secretary of the NPP, shared insights on the party’s status. He disclosed that out of the initially planned 104 constituencies slated for the primaries, legal challenges have forced the party to halt electoral proceedings in four key areas.
“Akuapem South, Agona West, Mampong, and potentially Obuasi West are currently facing court issues, leading to the suspension of primaries in these constituencies,” stated Haruna Mohammed.
This unexpected development introduces uncertainty and complexity into the NPP’s electoral journey, prompting a pause in the democratic process in the affected constituencies. The party is now tasked with navigating the legal intricacies while maintaining a stance of readiness for the elections in other constituencies.
Despite these legal challenges, the NPP emphasizes that it has taken all necessary measures to ensure a smooth and peaceful electoral process in the remaining constituencies. The ability to address legal concerns and successfully conduct the primaries will significantly influence the party’s trajectory in the upcoming political landscape.
