PPP to Contest 10 Parliamentary Seats in the 2024 Elections

The General Secretary of the PPP, Remy Paa Kow Edmundson, has indicated that the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) will contest in not more than 10 constituencies in the parliamentary election of the upcoming 2024 general election.

The party’s decision is targeted at ensuring that they make a mark in the upcoming election. The party said unlike the previous elections where the party presented candidates across the country, the party would this year target 10 constituencies where its candidates could make the most impact in their quest to annex the seat.

Speaking to the Daily Graphic last Monday, Mr. Remy Paa Kow Edmundson, indicated that in the 2020 elections, the PPP presented candidates in 19 constituencies but for the 2024 general election, the PPP was looking at presenting parliamentary candidates in not more than 10 constituencies where they believe they had the best of chance of annexing those seats.

He did not, however, disclose the constituencies and regions the party had targeted to contest, adding that that would be disclosed after the party opens nominations in April this year.

“In the past, we spent a lot of resources trying to contest parliamentary elections in almost all the constituencies across the country but as a party, we have realised that it is not feasible and we rather would like to focus on a few targeted constituencies where we are hopeful of making an impact,” he said.

Mr Edmundson said the PPP was wrapping up its constituency and regional elections which started in December last year, adding that in April, the party would announce the opening of nominations for flag bearer nominations.

The party does not have a flagbearer yet but Mr Edmundson said Brigitte Akosua Dzogbenuku, the 2020 Presidential Candidate and 2016 running mate of the party has declared her interest in contesting the flagbearership slot.
