The New Patriotic Party (NPP) will on July 11, 2023, open nominations for parliamentary primaries in constituencies where the party has no parliamentary representation.

The General Secretary expressed that, nomination forms could be obtained at a non-refundable application fee of GH¢3,000.00 in a banker’s draft payable to the NPP national headquarters in Accra.

Mr Frimpong indicated that in the event that an aspiring parliamentary candidate is denied access to the nomination form at the constituency level, he or she may acquire it from the regional or national secretariat through an appeal or can be downloaded from the Party’s website at a fee.

He added that, to successfully file a nomination, an aspiring parliamentary candidate must submit a non-refundable filing fee of GHS35,000 in a banker’s draft payable to the NPP national headquarters in Accra.
