The primaries are being held in 104 constituencies amidst legal hurdles in some constituencies. 

Termed “orphan constituencies”, these are areas where the party lost the 2016 Parliamentary Elections to the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and therefore has no sitting Members of Parliament on the party’s side in Parliament. The NPP has I69 seats out of the total 275 seats in Parliament.

Court cases

Elections are not being held in eight constituencies where the primaries have been put on hold until further notice owing to some compelling reasons:
