The New Patriotic Party (NPP) is conducting its parliamentary primary in the Ejisu Constituency, marking a crucial step in selecting a candidate for the upcoming by-election.

Nine aspirants vying for the party's nomination in the Ejisu Constituency were given the green light by the vetting committee on April 6, ensuring a competitive field for the party's members to choose from.

These contenders had earlier picked up nomination forms on April 4, following the opening of nominations on April 2, 2024, demonstrating their readiness to represent the party in the constituency.
