The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has stated that the regional delegates’ conference held over the weekend (27 to 29 May) has been nothing, but successful.
According to the party, “with the exception of the Central Region, which is the only region that has not yet been able to hold its regional annual delegates’ conference owing to a court process that was duly served on the party, the regional annual delegates’ conference came off successfully in all the 15 regions of the country.”
The statement signed by the general secretary of the NPP, John Boadu said it is the expectation of the party that all the court processes would be disposed of to allow for the conduct of the regional conference within the shortest possible time.
The party added that it will soon issue appropriate rules and regulations for the conduct of the national annual delegate’s conference to elect national executives.
