As the New Patriotic Party (NPP) prepares for its Parliamentary primaries on Saturday, June 13, delegates in 12 constituencies will not have the opportunity to elect a candidate.

The 12 constituencies which are spread across the Greater Accra, Western, Volta, Ashanti and Upper West Regions are grappling with issues concerning the candidature of some of the aspirants.

Bia East, Bia West, Juaboso and Akontonbra in the Western Region will be excused from voting following a request by the rRegional executives of the party. 

The party’s Regional Secretary, Charles Bissue said the elections in these constituencies had to be suspended for strategic reasons.

Also, delegates of the party in Nadoli Kaloe in the Upper West Region and Nkwanta South in the Volta Region will not vote.

The party has furthermore put on hold, elections in Klottey Korle, Obam Domeabra, Manhyia North, Kumawu Juabeng and Akrofuom.

The development reduces the the number of constituencies to a total of 263.

The fate of five other constituencies will be determined this week when the party’s Steering Committee sits on the disqualification cases of Carlos Ahenkorah and Adwoa Amoako of Tema West, Vicky Bright of Okai Koi South, Carl Dey of Ayawaso Central, Isaac Owireku Amofa of Dome Kwabenya and Agyeman Prempeh of Tema Central.

The national executives of the party have stressed that despite the numerous challenges, the primaries will take place as planned.

The party has subsequently issued guidelines to regulate their elections slated for June 13, 2015.
