Annoh Dompreh is the Majority Chief Whip in Parliament, and members of the governing party overwhelmingly support Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
According to him, practically every New Patriotic Party (NPP) member of parliament supports the vice president in leading the party into the 2024 general elections.
In an interview, the lawmaker expressed excitement about Dr. Bawumia’s election as the NPP’s flagbearer, saying, “We know it is a foregone decision; Dr. Bawumia is going to win hands down.” It was approximately 80% previously.
It has now moved up. Now, something like 95% of MPs firmly believe that we ought to support the Vice President. Right now, we’re at about 95 percent. It looks fantastic, and I believe it will only become better on D-Day. The Nsawam Adoagyiri MP stated, “Our goal right now is to make sure that following Saturday, we move toward a united front.
There will be more than 200,000 delegates from all throughout the nation participating in the elections that are set on Saturday, November 4, 2023.
Every constituency in each of the 16 regions of the nation will participate in the exercise, which will select a flagbearer to represent the party in the general elections in 2024.
According to Justin Frimpong Kodua, the General Secretary of the NPP, the party will support the winner of the primaries.
According to him, the candidates have also pledged to prioritize the party’s interests and accept the outcome of the primary.
We succeeded in getting all four candidates to sign a commitment, which, in essence, calls on them to embrace the preliminary findings and advance harmony and peace, according to Koduah. “They will support the primary winner and not resign from the party if they don’t win.”In addition, the candidates have pledged to “respect the decision of our party’s delegates and ensure and enforce the mechanisms that have been established by the party, as well as work within the timelines and duration that have been established by the party from now until the results are declared.”
At the opening of the conference, the Chairman of the Council of Elders lamented the plight of the party, saying that certain people’s self-interest had driven it into disarray.
He acknowledged that the contest for the flagbearer post has occasionally led to intense discussions and arguments between party members and supporters of the presidential contenders, but he urged all of the contenders to forgo division and maintain their unity following this Saturday’s presidential primary.
