A total of 1081 delegates participated in the selection process, which saw nine aspirants vying to represent the New Patriotic Party in the forthcoming by-election in the Ejisu Constituency.

However, the primary was not without controversy, as there were allegations of vote buying, double voting, and delegates attempting to take screenshots of their ballots.

The party organized the parliamentary primary following the passing of the Member of Parliament for Ejisu, John Ampontuah Kumah.
