NPP to elect executives for new regions on May 4

The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has scheduled May 4, 2019, to elect executives for the newly created regions in the country.

“The NPP shall, pursuant to Article 18 of the Party’s Constitution and notwithstanding any provision to the contrary, hold an Extraordinary Regional Annual Delegates Conference on May 4, 2019, to elect officers to occupy vacant regional executive positions, occasioned by the recent regional reorganization,” a statement signed by the party’s General Secretary, John Boadu noted.

John Boadu in the statement said this was decided on during the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting held on Tuesday, March 12, 2019, at their headquarters.

He said the decision was also endorsed by the party’s National Council on Tuesday.

“The meeting had in attendance, H.E. President Akufo-Addo, H.E. Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia, the Chief of Staff, the party’s National Chairman and other NEC members,” the statement added.

The NPP earlier directed its current regional executives to oversee the six newly created regions until substantive executives are elected to fill such positions.

Six new regions have been created. They include North East, Ahafo, Bono East, Western North, Oti and Savannah.

Below is the full statement from the NPP:

NPP TO HOLD ELECTIONS TO FILL VACANT REGIONAL EXECUTIVE POSITIONS

The NPP shall, pursuant to Article 18 of the Party’s Constitution and notwithstanding any provision to the contrary, hold an Extraordinary Regional Annual Delegates Conference on May 4, 2019, to elect officers to occupy vacant regional executive positions, occasioned by the recent regional reorganization.

This decision was arrived at by the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) at its meeting held on Tuesday, March 12, 2019, at the party headquarters, and was subsequently ratified by National Council, same day. The meeting had in attendance, H.E. President Akufo-Addo, H.E. Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia, the Chief of Staff, the party’s National Chairman and other NEC members.

NEC has, as part of the Regulations governing the impending conference, directed that, all persons serving as regional executives (appointed/elected) in regions that have been split, have the OPTION of choosing where they want to be, and shall MAINTAIN their current positions.

If on the other hand, any regional officer is desirous of contesting for a different position, then he/she shall vacate his/her current position, in order to be eligible to contest for the new position. Consequently, the position he/she was occupying shall be declared VACANT for fresh nominations to be filed.

Also, National Council approved the composition of Standing and Adhoc Committees of the Council comprising Finance Committee, Constitutional and Legal, Vetting Committee, Organizational Committee, Research Committee, National Disciplinary Committee, Dispute Resolution Committee, ICT Committee, Welfare Committee, Elections Committee, Events Committee, Communications Committee, and also approved additional names to the party’s National Council of Elders. These committees shall soon be inaugurated.

Finally, on the impending extraordinary regional delegates’ conference, the Party shall soon come out with guidelines and modalities for the conduct of the conference in all the affected regions. It is the expectation of the Party that all stakeholders shall be guided by these directives.

…Signed…

John Boadu
