Boakye Agyarko, a former energy minister and New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer candidate, has revealed that at least eight NPP presidential candidates favor a centralized special college election over a decentralized poll in which delegates cast their ballots in their respective areas. He claims that a number of factors, including the reliability of the ballot, are behind the desire for a centralized special college of elections. We actually did this for the first time in 2014 when we participated in regional voting. At the time, the justification for voting at the regional level was that we were in opposition and lacked the funds to have a centralized election. We are now arguing that all 891 or more delegates must congregate at a single location, he said. In an interview with Bernard Avle for his Point of View program on Citi TV, which GhanaWeb was watching, he made this admission. When asked by the host if the other candidates for flagbearer agreed with his statements, he responded: “At least I know eight candidates for president with whom we have discussed this, and we will continue to do so. “There are numerous justifications for the ballot’s integrity. For example, there are 38 delegates in the Upper East and 28 delegates in the Western North. So, will we set up a meeting for 38 people? Over 6,000 individuals cast ballots at the election of our national officials, and we brought them all to Accra Sports Stadium. The first person to pick up the New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential candidacy forms for the party’s primaries was Boakye Agyarko, a former campaign manager and policy advisor. On Tuesday, July 4, 2023, at the NPP’s regional headquarters, he was examined by the party’s vetting committee. On August 26, there will be special college elections for the NPP.
