The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has outlined plans for its 2017 Annual Delegates Conference which comes off at Cape Coast in the Central Region from 25th to 27th August, 2017.
In a statement signed and issued by the acting General Secretary of the party, John Boadu, yesterday in Accra, the party emphasised that the conference would not be for the election of party executives.
The statement thus cautioned party executives who have been appointed to national positions to do so but avail themselves when need be.
According to the statement, the constitution of the party provides that constituency and regional annual delegates conferences shall precede the national conference.
Article 7(13) states that “in every year, at least four (4) weeks prior to the National Annual Delegates Conference, there shall be a Regional Delegates Conference…”.
“Pursuant to this provision, the party, in a memo dated June 1, 2017, directed all Regional Executive Committees to organise their respective Regional Annual Delegates Conferences not later than July 26, 2017.
The party therefore, directed all Regional Executive Committees to furnish the National Secretariat with details (timelines of activities) of their respective Annual Conferences not later than 30th of June, 2017.
