NPP elections: Nomination forms to be uploaded online, says John Boadu
The general secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), John Boadu, has said nomination forms for the constituency and regional level elections of the party will be uploaded online.
Speaking to party members in the Eastern Region, Boadu said this decision has come about as a result of the decision the National Council of the party took a few weeks ago to make nomination forms accessible to all party members interested in vying for positions.
“As it was done with the Electoral Area elections, nomination forms for the constituency and regional elections will go online. This, we believe, will curb the perennial issues of prospective aspirants being denied forms by some party officers” he said.
He said the decision to avail the nomination forms online for the electoral area elections have helped reduced if not eradicated completely the disruptions usually seen in such elections.
“The party uploading the Electoral Area forms online has brought transparency and peace to the exercise. We believe that if same is replicated in the Constituency and Regional Elections, we shall be spared of complaints of non-availability of forms or the deliberate acts by some party officers to deny aspiring candidates these forms” Boadu told the party members.
The NPP, he emphasised, has gone digital already and efforts will be made to ensure that this is sustained and improved as the months go by.
The NPP is conducting elections in the various electoral areas as the polling station elections have already been held, except in a few constituencies.
The party is set to conduct elections in the various constituencies and the regions in the coming months before the National Executives’ elections are held in July.
