The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has set the stage for the vetting process of its presidential aspirants ahead of the 2024 general elections.
The party has announced that the vetting will commence on Monday, July 3, 2023, and will be conducted by the National Presidential Vetting Committee.
The vetting process is a crucial step in the party’s internal selection process, as it aims to thoroughly scrutinize each candidate’s qualifications, capabilities, and suitability for the party’s presidential candidacy. It provides an opportunity for the candidates to present their visions, plans, and credentials to the committee for evaluation.
The first batch of aspirants, which includes prominent figures such as Alan Kwadwo Kyeremanten, Kwadwo Poku, and Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, will face the vetting panel on the initial day of the process. Their presentations and responses will be carefully assessed to determine their potential as presidential candidates.
The vetting process will continue on Tuesday, July 4, with additional candidates appearing before the committee. Among them are Boakye Kyeremateng Agyarko, Kwabena Agyei Agyepong, and Kennedy Ohene Agyapong. These candidates will have their chance to articulate their visions and demonstrate their suitability for the party’s highest office.
The remaining candidates will go through the vetting process on July 5 and 6, ensuring that every aspirant has an equal opportunity to present themselves to the committee.
The NPP has urged all presidential hopefuls to take note of the schedule and attend the vetting process as required by the committee. It is an essential step towards narrowing down the field of candidates and ultimately selecting the most qualified individual to represent the party in the upcoming general elections.
As the vetting process unfolds, it will provide party members, supporters, and the general public with valuable insights into the aspirations and capabilities of each candidate. The outcome of the vetting process will play a significant role in shaping the party’s future and determining who will lead their campaign in the highly anticipated 2024 elections.
