Voting has ended at the NDC national delegate congress, candidates and supporters are awaiting the results.
After almost 16 hours, the voting finally ended and counting began.
Inadequate polling centres for the over 9,000 delegates have been blamed for the cause of the delays in the election of national executives of the party. There were five polling centres for the entire process.
Some delegates question why a party election should enter into a second day when even a national election with more candidates and voters is done in a day.
A total of 89 candidates put themselves up for this year’s national executive elections. 65 are contesting for 10 positions in the ongoing election. The remaining 24 had earlier taken part in the Women’s and Youth elections which took place on October 27.
The positions being contested for are the national chairman, vice-chairman, general secretary, deputy general secretary, national organiser, deputy national organiser, communications officer, deputy communications officer, national executive committee members and the Zongo caucus coordinator.
