PPP opens nominations for presidential primary April

The Progressive People's Party (PPP) will open nominations for its presidential primary from April 1 to 30, 2024.


The decision was arrived at during the party’s National Committee meeting held on March 7, 2024.

The PPP, in a statement signed and issued by its National Secretary, Remy Paa Kow Edmundson, to announce the opening of the nominations date said vetting of aspirants and election was expected to be completed by May 15, 2024.

Filing of nominations

The party said there would be a reduction in the filing fee for female aspirants and persons with disabilities by 50 per cent.

It said candidates must demonstrate their ability to mobilise resources in order to contest the 2024 presidential election on the ticket of the party.

The statement said “all interested aspirants are to pick their nomination forms from the office of the National Secretary at the party headquarters, within the period indicated for the nominations.”

“The Progressive People’s Party commits to undertake a free, fair and transparent presidential primary election and urges all party members to support this endeavour,” the statement said.

Presidential elections

The party, since its formation in 2012, has contested in the 2012, 2016 and 2020 general elections and will do so in this year’s polls to elect a President for the country.

Mr Edmundson, in a recent interview with the Daily Graphic, said the nominations process for the presidential primary would be completed by the end of April after which the PPP would start full-scale campaigning towards the 2024 general election.

He mentioned the 2020 Presidential Candidate and 2016 running mate of the party, Brigitte Akosua Dzogbenuku, as having declared her interest in contesting the flagbearer slot and stressed that others would be known when the party opens its nominations for the presidential primary in April.

Mr Edmundson said the PPP was wrapping up its constituency and regional elections which started in December last year and it would conclude its reorganisation process with the election of its presidential candidate for the 2024 general election.
