The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has postponed its National Executive Elections to November 3.
The election which was scheduled to be held on October 20, according to the party, has been postponed due to challenges in finding a venue.
Addressing the media yesterday, the General Secretary of the NDC, Asiedu Nketia explained “It had been accepted that the national congress be held in Accra at the International Trade Fair Centre, but there was a little hitch. The trade fair facility is not going to be available to us on the 20th of November. The earliest we could get to book the place was on the 3rd of November and so the Council of Elders has agreed that the date of the Congress be shifted to 3rd of November.”
Already, there is tension within the party, as some members have called for a change in the party’s headquarters.
Former Central Regional Chairman, Allotey recently mentioned that “there are some “mafias” at the party headquarters whom when not voted out, could cause the party’s defeat in the 2020 general elections.”
According to him, the General Secretary and some executives in the party should back out to pave way for new entrants.
The NDC, over the weekend, organised a successful regional elections, which saw some huge surprises.
Former Transport Minister, Ms. Dzifa Attivor, incumbent Eastern Regional Chairman, Bismark Tawiah Boateng, and former Central Regional Minister, Mr. Aquinas Tawiah Quansah all lost their bid to lead the party in their respective regions.
However, in the Greater Accra Region, Ade Coker, the incumbent Chairman retained his seat by a whisker.
