Minority leader, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu has suggested that his party must consider minimizing the number of persons that contest as presidential candidates during primaries.

He is one of a few people within the NPP who suggest that at least three candidates be allowed to contest during primaries for the flagbearer slot.

He said such a mechanism greatly helps to reduce the animosity and perceived misplaced agenda of political parties.

“The reasoning behind this proposal is that, in every party there are the moderates, the extremists and those that tow the middle line, so I think that our politics which is intra-party will begin to be shaped by that idea” he argued.

The lawmaker for Suame told XYZ News that political parties must begin to centre their activities on concrete and productive ideologies that will propel the growth of the country.

Recently, there have been rumors that leading members of the NPP like Alan Kyeremanten, Dr. Konadu Apraku and Richard Anane are likely to run for the flagbearership position of the party.
