We’re reviewing roadmap for internal elections – Otokunor

The Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Peter Boamah Otokunor, has intimated that the party is reviewing the roadmap for its internal elections following the extension of the deadline for the registration of new members into the party.

He said the registration exercise, which commenced on May 21, 2022, was scheduled to end on June 7, 2022 and that the exercise was extended for about two more weeks, and thus, disrupted the initial schedule for the party’s internal elections.

Mr Otokunor indicated that the exercise which ended at the weekend had compelled the party to review the initial schedule and arrangements, and assured members, supporters, sympathisers, well-wishers and faithful of the party that the new guidelines would be announced soon.

“The NDC’s new membership registration exercise was confronted with some challenges in some constituencies, with some members, supporters and sympathisers of the party alleging that they had been denied access to the party’s identification cards in spite of complying with the requirements.

“About two weeks ago, the leadership of the party had to deploy a special taskforce to handle the registration and issuance of membership cards in some constituencies in the Central and Bono East regions and efforts to resolve the challenges in some constituencies, including Agona East and Techiman South constituencies proved intractable, hence the move.

“The Techiman South Taskforce was led by Professor Joshua Alabi, a leading member of the party, while that of the Agona East was led by Ako Gunn, a Deputy National Communications Officer of the party and per the initial guideline, the NDC is supposed to have organised its Branch elections from June15 to July 15, 2022 and the results of that election, collated from August 1 to 7, 2022.
