Africa-Press – Ghana. A Professor at the University of Ghana, Kobby Mensah has said that it should be possible to have a a specific timetable for all the political parties to conduct their internal elections.
He says this to make the point that there is fatigue in the New Patriotic Party’s ongoing parliamentary primary for the orphan constituencies.
Prof Mensah noted that the party is experiencing too many internal elections – the Super Delegates Conference, the Delegates Conference, the parliamentary primary in the orphan constituencies, and the last parliamentary primary for the other constituencies – within a short time which is leading to fatigue.
“There appears to be a fatigue in the NPP elections…It should be possible for us to have a timetable for the elections of the parties,” he said on the Election Command Centre on Saturday, December 2.
Delegates of the NPP are voting today in the orphan constituencies to elect their parliamentary candidates.
Orphan constituencies are areas where the NPP has no sitting MPs. In other words, constituencies whose MPs are from the National Democratic Congress or independent candidates.
The party urged all stakeholders to comply with these provisions to ensure a smooth and transparent process.
