The outbreak of the COVID- 19 disease has indeed altered the regular way of living as it was now a luxury for people to gather in large numbers for any activity.
The Progressive People Party (PPP) is set to hold a virtual national Convention on the 18th of July because of the inability to meet in large numbers courtesy COVID-19 and also as a way of adhering to the COVID-19 protocols instituted by the president to combat the disease.
This was made known by the national Committee of the party.
Paa Kow Ackon, the current Communications Director of the PPP had this to say about the virtual convention which would be done via Zoom.
“The convention will be done via Zoom. We have communicated to the our members that the regional and constituency executives should gather at one point and get the event on their laptops and phones so that other members can participate. It is not possible for all party members to converge at one point and exercise their franchise. At the close of nomination, many of the officers who file are definitely going to go unopposed because some decided to throw in the towel.”
He however revealed that, another date would be arraigned for the Presidential and Parliamentary Primary Elections for the party.
