The New Patriotic Party (NPP), has set Saturday, April 13, 2024 to elect a candidate for the Ejisu constituency by-election, occasioned by the death of the MP and Deputy Finance Minister, John Ampontuah Kumah on March 7.

Consequently, the NPP has announced a three-day window, from Tuesday, April 2 to Thursday April 4, 2024, during which aspirants may purchase and file nominations at the constituency party office.

A statement signed by the General Secretary of the NPP, Justin Kodua Frimpong announced timelines and guidelines for the primary.

Here are some details gleaned from the press release:

Aspiring parliamentary candidates must purchase nomination forms after paying a non-refundable application fee of GHC 3,000.

To successfully file the nomination, an aspiring parliamentary candidate (APC) shall pay a non-refundable filing fee of thirty-five thousand Ghana cedis (GHC35, 000.00).

Women, Youth and Persons With Disabilities (PWDs) who want to run for office will enjoy a 50% rebate on the filing fees. This means they will be required to pay a non-refundable filing fee of seventeen thousand and five hundred Ghana cedis (GHC 17,500.00).
