President Akufo-Addo congratulates the NPP for a successful parliamentary primaries

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) leadership and all of its members have received congratulations from President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for the well run parliamentary primaries held in orphan constituencies on Saturday.

I extend warm congratulations to the National, Regional, Constituency, Electoral Area and Polling Station Officers, and, indeed, the entire membership of the New Patriotic Party for the conduct of free, fair, transparent, and credible parliamentary primaries in “orphan” constituencies during the weekend of Saturday, 2nd December 2023,” he said in a statement on Sunday.

“This completes the penultimate stage of the Party’s preparations for the all-important contest of 7th December 2024, and we have, once again, expressed our deep attachment and commitment to the democratic values, which have been hallmarks of our Party’s great tradition,” he said.

The President said despite the challenges confronting the nation, the party had demonstrated, with its record in office, that “we are the Party that can bring progress and prosperity to all parts of our country.

“So, I urge all winners to be magnanimous in their celebrations and work hard to bring onboard those who were not successful.

“Through this, we shall create the united, formidable front that, under the leadership of our new, worthy presidential candidate, Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, will enable us to go into the difficult 2024 elections with quiet confidence, and, with the help of Almighty God, Break the Eight, which is the fervent wish of all NPP members, and, indeed, of all well-meaning Ghanaians,” he stated.

The party chose parliamentary candidates for the general election of 2024 on Saturday in what are known as “orphan” constituencies—those in which the party does not have a member of parliament.

A total of 321 candidates competed for the one seat in each of the 111 constituencies spread over the 16 regions which hosted the elections.
