The National Democratic Congress (NDC) is expected to hold its national executive elections on November 17, 2018 at the Fantasy Dome of the Trade Fair Centre in the Greater Accra Region.

Last month, the party elected its regional executives nationwide.

Delegates from all 275 constituencies gathered at various designated centres to elect regional officers.

Kofi Adams, the National Organiser of the NDC, made this known in Accra.

“The party’s National Congress is on the 17th of November for National Executives at the Fantasy Dome of the Trade Fair Centre and “there will be a report from the General Secretary, motion will be moved, debated, accepted, financial reports read and amendments will be made,” he stated.

The Founder of the NDC, former President Jerry Rawlings had earlier urged delegates to elect committed executives who will serve the interest of the party since “the outcome of the conferences will determine the future direction of the party.”

The NDC has slated December 2018 for the election of its flagbearer for the 2020 presidential election.

General Secretary, Asiedu Nketia, said the date is in line with what their constitution proposes.

“We have taken note of our constitutional requirement to choose our Flagbearer, 24 months before the next elections and the constitution not having been amended yet, we can safely calculate our timelines from December 7, 2020, so that will bring us back to December 7, 2018 for a choice to be made on who leads our party into the next general election,” he noted.

Already, 11 members of the party have declared their intention to contest the flagbearer position which includes former president John Mahama. –citinewsroom.com
