Re-Run of Okaikoi South Parliamentary Primary

After lengthy deliberations of the National Executive Committee of the New Patriotic Party on the work and findings of the Ambrose Dery chaired Committee set up to go into the protests arising out of the Okaikoi Parliamentary Primary of 30th April, 2011, the National Executive Committee has decided to cancel the Parliamentary Primary held in that constituency due to the flawed nature of the vetting process.

The National Executive in collaboration with the Regional and Constituency Executive bodies would therefore reopen a fresh process for all interested parties to partake, including the aspirants who contested the April 30th Primary. A time table would be issued in due course to guide the conduct of the process.

The Party leadership would like to call on all interested parties within and outside the constituency to remain calm and help the party structures in conducting a peaceful, incident free re-run of the Primary.

Thank You.
