Party Enthusiasm and Celebration

The news of Kozie’s victory has resonated positively among NPP supporters, who are enthusiastic about her potential representation in the Adentan constituency. The celebration of her win underscores the importance of grassroots engagement and the impact of dynamic individuals within political party structures.


Delegates’ Role in the Election Process

The parliamentary primaries are part of the NPP’s comprehensive preparation strategy for the upcoming 2024 general elections. Delegates played a crucial role in the election process, exercising their voting rights to determine the party’s candidate for the Adentan constituency.

Understanding Orphan Constituencies

Orphan constituencies, as defined within the NPP context, are areas where the party currently lacks sitting Members of Parliament. These are constituencies whose current MPs are affiliated with the National Democratic Congress (NDC) or independent candidates. The parliamentary primaries in these constituencies serve as a strategic move by the NPP to bolster its presence and increase the chances of securing these seats in the upcoming elections.

The Road Ahead for Kozie


As the elected NPP parliamentary candidate for the Adentan constituency, Kozie now faces the responsibility of not only representing the party but also addressing the needs and concerns of the constituents. Her victory positions her as a key player in the party’s quest to strengthen its foothold in the orphan constituencies.
