The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has set November 4, 2023, for its presidential primaries to select a flagbearer for the 2024 general elections.
Nominations will therefore be opened from May 26 to June 24, 2023.
However, there will be a special congress on August 26 should more than five candidates file for the position.
Also, the parliamentary primaries will be held in February 2024 and nominations will be opened from December 20, 2023, and January 4, 2024.
