The National Council of the ruling New Patriotic Party will be meeting  Wednesday, June 3, to fix a date for the party’s parliamentary primaries in constituencies with sitting Members of Parliament (MPs).

The party had originally scheduled to elect its candidates in these constituencies on April 25, but that had to be cancelled because of the ban on public gatherings to contain and stop the spread of the novel coronavirus – COVID-19 pandemic.

The Council, according to a trusted source, would discuss the modalities to conduct the elections.

The meeting comes on the heels of the phased easing of restrictions – to re-open the country by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

The President in his 10th address to the nation on the country’s COVID-19 situation, said some social gatherings – church services, conferences and meetings of not more 100 people, could be held.

The source said the party would make sure that everything done was consistent with safety and preventive protocols.

The decision to suspend the party’s primaries was taken at a National Steering Committee meeting held on Tuesday, April 14.
