Insist on Your Right to Education

Uneducated citizenry is like a pitch any game can be played on it. Illiteracy is what has given the politicians in Ghana the chance to fool so many people for so a long a time.

NPP Press Statement


Every constituency executive officer of the New Patriotic Party shall vote in the regional executive elections should the proposed amendments endorsed by the National Council of the party be accepted at the national delegates conference on Saturday.

This recommendation was made, among others, at the National Council’s meeting on the 28th April 2009 and was duly captured in the proposals sent to the constituencies in accordance with Article 19 of the party’s constitution.

Any document supposedly by the National Council that suggests that constituency officers shall not vote in regional executive elections is incorrect.

The rationale behind including all constituency executives in the election of regional executives is to make the process more democratic and to strengthen the party at the constituency level.

To further strengthen the party at the constituency level, it has been proposed that the electoral college for electing constituency officers be expanded to include all polling station executives. This amendment, if it is passed, would make the election of constituency executives more democratic, and improve the party’s chances of retaining its hardworking and known constituency officers.
