The NPP National Executive Committee has set January 12, 2020 for the conduct of the the party’s parliamentary primaries in constituencies where the party has sitting Members of Parliament.
The approved nomination fee for aspiring parliamentary candidates stands at GHc 2,000 whereas the filing fee is GHc 20,000.
In line with the party’s convention, non-MPs wishing to contest in the primaries shall be required to pay a development levy of GHc 30,000.
However, persons with disabilities, women and the youth shall enjoy a rebate of 50% on the filing fee and the development levy.
Such persons will therefore be required to pay GHc 25,000 to successfully file their nominations.
The National Council of the party, which is expected to meet within this week, will also approve the guidelines and modalities for the conduct of the party’s presidential primaries for the 2020 general elections.
