NPP to open flagbearership nominations on June 6

By on

Afoko1The opposition New Patriotic Party will on June 6 open nominations for the party’s flagbearership contest.

This decision was taken at the NPP’s heated National Executive Council (NEC) meeting held yesterday at the party’s headquarters in Accra.

However, there will be another meeting next week to discuss and approve modalities for the nominations and the wayforward.

Information available to Citi News indicates that some of the national executives proposed opening nominations December this year or early next year.

But majority of the NEC members especially from the various regions strongly disagreed and called for early flagbearership congress.

The majority side was convinced that organizing early flagbearership contest will create room for unity.

This in their estimation will boost the party’s electoral fortunes in 2016 as the leadership is desperate to wrestle power from the governing ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) “at all cost?”

The meeting which was expected to be a happy Krukrudites meeting turned gaga when some of the national executives appeared autocratic.

Citi News also gathered that the NPP got broke after the Tamale congress.

High profile NPP bigwigs who attended Thursday’s crunch NEC meeting were the party’s two times Presidential candidate, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Ado and his trusted twice running mate, Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia and former President John Agyekum Kufuor.
