The New Patriotic Party is expected to open nominations later today for presidential aspirants to pick up their forms to contest the elections scheduled for December this year.
Before the nominations are opened later this afternoon, the National Council (NC) of the party will meet to affirm it, as well as other arrangements and proposals put forward by the National Executive Committee (NEC) and the National Steering Committee.
This is the first time the NC is meeting since the new national executive members, under the chairmanship of Mr Paul Awentami Afoko, were elected into office.
Nominations will remain open for a month at a fee of GH¢10, 000 for the forms, while filing of the papers will attract GH¢ 75,000.
The NEC has also concluded arrangements for nominations to open for the presidential primary on 6 December. These include the approval of guidelines and code of ethics for the conduct of the campaign leading to the primary.
