The NPP’s national elections committee is expected to publish for the notice of the general public, in consultation with stakeholders of the party, the names of aspirants who have filed nomination forms to contest any of the eight positions.

The aspirants will be vetted subsequently, on specific dates yet to be announced but before the final election date.
