NPP Vows To Capture ‘Orphan’ Constituencies
Forty-two aspiring parliamentary candidates, including incumbent MPs, of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) have filed their nomination to vie for the 14 seats which the NPP occupies in the Brong-Ahafo Region.
The party has already conducted primaries to elect aspirants to contest the remaining 10 seats in the hands of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
The Brong Ahafo Regional Youth Organiser of the NPP, Mr Alfred Ofori Annye, who disclosed this to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Sunyani , said the party was yet to schedule an appropriate date for the vetting and voting process.
The NPP occupies the seats for Nkoranza North and South, Tano North and South, Dormaa East and West, Asutifi North, Berekum, Sunyani East and West, Wenchi, Tain, Jaman South and Asunafo North.
Mr Annye said the party was poised and working hard to capture the orphan seats held by the NDC.
He appealed to the aspiring parliamentary candidates to conduct their electioneering devoid of acrimony and rancour to avoid creating divisions in the party.
The youth leader said the upcoming general election was very crucial to the NPP, since it served as "a transitional period between the party and the other opposition parties, especially the NDC".
Mr Annye charged the party's foot soldiers to redouble their efforts and embark on house-to-house campaigning to explain the laudable and good policies of the government to woo more people to join the party for a landslide victory in December.
