The Presidential Election committee of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has issued a statement requesting Regional Executives to suspend all previously planned activities including delegates camping.
In a statement signed by the secretary of the Presidential Election Committee, William Yeboah, it said ” All Regional Executives requested to suspend any previously planned programs including but not limited to workshops, training, extended meetings, retreats, residential retreats or any events involving delegates camping, for the duration of this week until the conclusion of the Electoral college election”
It also warned all delegates who will be voting in the special delegates’ conference on August 26, 2023 that publicly displaying cast ballots shall be rejected.
This act, the party noted, constitutes a criminal offence and culprits shall be subjected to legal scrutiny.
“Delegates are hereby informed that any cast ballots publicly displayed will be rejected. We wish to further emphasise that there will be no congress on the day of voting, and voting will be strictly walk-in” it added
Considering the above “it is anticipated that there will be no provision for a public address or occasion for any National Party Executive, government representative, or regional executive to publicly address delegates on the day of the voting.
“We wish to reassure all relevant parties, including stakeholders, delegates, aspirants, and the public that with these guidelines in place, no individual can decipher the voting preferences and patterns of specific voters after the voting process concludes. This measure guarantees the integrity and confidentiality of the voting exercise.”
