The Central Regional Director of Elections for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Nurudeen Issah, has vowed that the party will reclaim all of its lost parliamentary seats in the region in 2020.

He said the course would be championed by some new constituency executives the party will elect next week.


The election for the party’s youth and women organisers in the Central Region comes off at Winneba on Thursday, August 30, while the entire regional polls will take place at Kasoa on Saturday, September 1.

Mr Issah noted that the party had raised the confidence of its members in the electoral processes to bring about maximum trust from the base, an element the party lacked in 2016 that affected it negatively.

“The most important thing in all the electioneering activity has to do with confidence, if the party activists are confident in the process, the exercises leading to the process gingers them up, prior to the 2016 elections the party had confidence in its structures but was not strong.

“I’m optimistic the party will also be able to win all swing constituencies to increase its numbers in parliament, before the 2016 elections, the NDC had 16 seats in the region, while the New Patriotic Party (NPP) had 7, but the party could get only four seats out of the 23, including losing its two traditional constituencies, Ekumfi and Twifo-Atemokwa.

“In all, 62 aspirants are contesting various executive positions in the Central Region, all steps have been taken to make the elections free and fair for all aspirants, all the necessary logistics for the events have been secured.

“To curb vote buying, the party has resolved to start the elections as early as possible to eliminate camping which hitherto encourages vote buying, however the region’s tag as a swing region during elections will discourage aspirants because the people in the region “vote according to their conscience” Mr Issah cautioned. –citinewsroom.com
