The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has postponed its scheduled flagbearer aspirant balloting for today, September 6, 2023.

Alexander Afenyo-Markin, the spokesperson for the elections committee, stated that a new date for the balloting will be set after finalizing the election guidelines. Concerns raised by individuals about issues at polling centers are being addressed, and the committee will release a full report after consulting party stakeholders.

Alan Kyerematen, who ranked third in the Special Delegates’ Conference, had initially been a candidate for the November 4 primaries but withdrew, citing alleged intimidation of his supporters and election manipulation in favor of another candidate.

Afeyno-Markin urged party members to maintain decorum as they prepare to face the National Democratic Congress in the 2024 elections, emphasizing the need for unity and responsible conduct within the party.
