101 candidates pick nomination forms to contest NDC positions

A total of 101 candidates have picked nomination forms to contest for various vacant positions in the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Out of the number, about 90 have filed their nomination forms as at the close of September 7, 2018, which was set aside as the deadline for filling the forms.

Interacting with a section of the media in Accra, Asiedu Nketia, the General Secretary of the NDC, revealed that due to the advice of the Council of Elders of the party, the deadline for the submission of the forms had been extended to 10 more working days.

The umbrella family is expected to gather at the Trade Fair Centre in Accra on November 3, 2018 to elect national executives that will stir the affairs of the party for the next four years.

Relatedly, the leadership of the party has hinted they will take disciplinary action against the party’s Deputy General Secretary, Koku Anyidoho and others, who they believe is on a separate agenda to betray the party.

Kofi Portuphy, the National Chairman of the NDC in a statement signed and issued in Accra on Monday, said Koku Anyidoho is accused of being the face behind a group calling itself ‘Young Democratic Forces’ designed to frustrate the party’s General Secretary and the hard work of the NDC in the recovery process from their defeat in the 2016 elections.

He blamed the recent happenings in the party on the activities of some high ranking executives to incite fellow members against the party describing it as their disloyalty to the cause and vision of the party.

“The party bemoans the involvement of some high ranking executives in a grand scheme to mudsling fellow comrades under the possible influence by opponents of NDC.

“I call on all to condemn and reject with disdain the false and malicious contents of the press statement by the so-called pro-NDC group named Young Democratic Forces on the impending National Delegates Congress to elect National Executives,” the statement said.

The Young Democratic Forces released a statement, calling on the delegates to reject Mr Nketia due to the party’s defeat in the 2016 polls and should reject the National Chairman, General Secretary, National Organiser and National Youth Organiser.” –kasapafmonline.com/peacefmonline.com
