The New Patriotic Party (NPP) is expected to conduct the extraordinary regional delegates conferences and special regional executive committee meetings.
The party has therefore spelt out the modalities for the conference.
The essence of the conferences and meetings, according to the party, is to elect or appoint persons to occupy vacant regional executive positions in accordance with the party’s constitution and guidelines of the National Executive Committee and National Council.
The decision to hold these extraordinary regional delegates conferences and special regional executive meetings have been necessitated by the need to fill vacant regional executive positions, occasioned by the recent regional reorganization witnessed in the country.
The party General Secretary, Mr. John Boadu, said the regional conferences and special regional executive committee meetings shall be held only in regions affected by the regional reorganization.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the extraordinary regional delegates conferences shall be held in the newly created regions comprising the Oti Region, Western North Region, Bono East Region, Ahafo Region, Savanna Region and North East Region, whereas the “traditional regions” from which these new regions were carved, comprising the Volta Region, Western Region, Bono Region and Northern Region, shall hold special Regional Executive Committee Meetings,” he added.
The party appealled to all stakeholders, especially the would-be candidates and their supporters, to respect the rules of engagement.
