There are fresh calls within the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) for an early congress to elect the flagbearer of the party ahead of the 2024 election.
But speaking to JoyNews, MP for the Subin Constituency, Eugene Boakye Antwi noted that electing the flagbearer early affords the party and the individual enough time to prepare for what will be a crucial election in 2024.
“Going by experience, my view is that let us hold the super delegates as early as say next spring, March thereabouts, give them four or five months to campaign around the country
“The most important thing is that we must look at the party
The Legislator recounted how late the party elected its Flagbearer prior to the 2008 elections which he said affected the outcome of the election results.
For this reason, Eugene Boakye Antwi believes the party must not delay in electing its flagbearer for the 2024 elections.
According to him, the early election of the Flagbearer has the tenacity to affect the outcome of the elections since it affords the party enough time to campaign.Source:wwwasempanewscom
