The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) on Friday, May 27, 2022, began its regional delegates conference to elect new executives.
Already, 8 regions including Ahafo, Bono East, Central, Northern, North East, Savannah, Upper East and Western North have held their elections with many of their chairmen retaining their positions.
Meanwhile, delegates in Ashanti, Eastern, Greater Accra, Upper West, Volta, Oti, and Western Regions are yet to cast their ballots. The contests are scheduled for Saturday, May 28, 2022.
