At its Emergency Delegates Conference at the Trade Fair Center in Accra, the NPP, has decided after a hot debate that, where there are more than three (3) contestants for nomination as Presidential Candidate, a Special Electoral College shall cast their vote by secret ballot for the first three (3) contestants to be shortlisted.

the National Council, the National Executive Committee, the Regional Executive Committee, the National Council of Elders, Members of Parliament, 3 Representatives of Each of the Special Organs of the party, Past National Officers and 10 Representatives of External Branches.

Others include, Founding Members during the Registration of the party at the EC and all NPP Card-bearing Ministers when the party is in government. Each Delegate is entitled to a single vote.
