The New Patriotic Party (NPP) is yet to receive official communication from the Electoral Commission (EC) regarding the schedule for this year’s general elections, a sentiment shared earlier by the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

The NPP’s Director of Research and Elections, Evans Nimako, clarified in an interview that the party had only received an invitation for an Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting, scheduled for Thursday, March 7, 2024.

This comes amidst reports of the Electoral Commission’s plans for key election activities, including nominations, balloting, and result declaration, with the NPP emphasising the absence of official communication on the broader election program.

“The NPP has not received any official communication from the EC concerning the programme of activities for the 2024 presidential and parliamentary elections.”

“All that we have gotten is a notice of invitation for an IPAC meeting to be held on Thursday 7th of this month at the EC Headquarters so I will also confirm that we have not received any such communication from the EC,” Evans Nimako stated in an Eyewitness news interview on Citi News.

The statement echoes the sentiments previously expressed by the National Democratic Congress (NDC), which criticised the commission for releasing the calendar to the public.

Reports indicate that the Electoral Commission plans to accept nominations for this year’s presidential and parliamentary elections from September 9 to 13, marking a significant countdown to the peak of the political season.

This will be followed by the balloting for positions on the presidential ballot paper on September 23, 2024, and the parliamentary balloting on September 24, 2024.

Furthermore, the Electoral Commission expects to declare the results of the 2024 presidential polls within three days of the voting exercise, provided everything proceeds as planned.

As part of its activities for the 2024 general election, the Electoral Commission will conduct a voters’ registration exercise from May 7 to May 27, 2024, and will also undertake a nationwide exercise to replace missing voter ID cards starting from May 30, 2024.

The registration exercise will be preceded by a 56-day public education campaign, which will run from April 1 to May 26, 2024.
