The governing NPP says 38 proposals have been tabled for possible amendments to the party’s constitution. Key among them is a proposal to elect a presidential candidate two years before a major election.
Addressing the media on Tuesday, the Communications Director for the NPP, Yaw Buaben Asamoa, said the party would use the upcoming National Delegates’ Conference to consider these proposals.
“All the proposals that have been forwarded will be debated and either accepted or rejected. Once accepted, everybody at the conference will know the ones that have been accepted, and then they will be made amenable to legal language and then incorporated into the Constitution,” he said.
The NPP has scheduled December 18 to December 20, 2021, to hold its national conference in Kumasi.
Ahead of the conference, the party has banned all activities associated with internal party contests, parliamentary and presidential primaries, as well as the display of paraphernalia and advocacy for aspirants.
“The Conference is dedicated to total mobilisation of the Ghanaian people since the party has demonstrated ability to mobilise the people around credible economic independence that deserves to break the eight. We have no doubt that the men and women in the forefront of the NPP can lead the charge to deliver results. Together with the nation, we will break the eight and consolidate effective governance for the benefit of the people,” Mr Buaben Asamoa said.
