In a statement released by Fifi Fiavi Kwetey, the party’s General Secretary, it was announced that the Council of Elders will convene on Thursday, March 7, 2024, at 11 am to deliberate on the nomination.

This will be followed by a meeting of the National Executive Committee at 3 pm on the same day to further discuss the selection.
