The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has rubbished reports that its decision to organize parliamentary primaries in April, a few months to the December 2020 elections, will affect their fortunes.
In its latest report, the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) states that although the party is most likely to win the 2020 elections, the timing of its parliamentary primaries will give them little-to-no time to calm certain situations that usually characterize such primaries.
Reacting to this in an interview with 3news.com‘s Selorm Amenya, Director of Elections for the NPP Evans Nimako emphasised that the party has plans in place to ensure things are done smoothly.
“The party leadership is putting together enough mechanism to ensure that the time we are done with the primaries…and the presidential primaries the New Patriotic Party will come out very formidable to prosecute the 2020 elections.”
Mr Nimako stressed: “What I am telling you is that the New Patriotic Party will put in place enough mechanism to ensure we go into the 2020 elections very prepared…It is all about how the party puts itself together.”
He noted the NPP has conducted its own survey on their fortunes amongst other things, and are ready for victory in 2020.
“The New Patriotic Party itself has also conducted its internal survey and we know where we stand…”
