Desist from ‘premature’ campaigning’ – NPP cautions parliamentary aspirants
The New Patriotic Party has sent a strong message to the party’s 2019 parliamentary aspirants to desist from campaigning ahead of the main primaries.
The caution comes following complaints the party has been receiving about the conduct of some prospective parliamentary aspirants who are overtly and covertly campaigning to delegates ahead of the opening of nominations.
“The conduct of these persons does not only flout the party’s internal regulations but also undermines the very structures of the party particularly at the constituency levels and regional levels. They are reminded that the party reserves the right to DISQUALIFY any parliamentary aspirant who fails to abide by the rules of engagement,” – General Secretary of the party, John Boadu disclosed this in a statement.
According to the party, the Album that was used to elect the current Constituency Executives at the 2018 Constituency Annual Delegates Conference SHALL be the same Album that WOULD BE USED for the conduct of the upcoming parliamentary primaries.
