The NPP has scheduled June 20, 2020, to hold its Parliamentary Primaries in the 168 Constituencies where the Party has sitting MPs to elect its Parliamentary Candidates for the 2020 General Elections.
The Party has also resolved to acclaim the sole candidate who had filed his nomination to contest in the Presidential Primaries, H.E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, as the Party’s 2020 Presidential Candidate.

The date for the acclamation of the Presidential Candidate and his Running Mate will soon be communicated to the general public. Equally, the Party will soon issue guidelines for the conduct of the Parliamentary Primaries.
