The General Secretary of the largest opposition party the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketiah has disclosed that the NDC will be holding its Congress this year after it failed to hold a constitutional amendment conference last year.
This comes in the wake of ruling New Patriotic Party outdooring of an Election Calender that will see National Executives elected latest by July this year. This week, NPP is electing its Polling Station Executives and is expected to end next week.
The NDC on the other hand has announced it will be holding its Congress this year despite delays in passing amendments and holding a conference originally scheduled for last year but which didn’t come on.
The NDC party has also been putting together a special plan to be implemented from its branches to its regional executives in the two “weak regions” of Ashanti and Eastern Region, MyNewsGh.com learnt.
In a yet to be published interview with the Daily Graphic, the NDC Chief Scribe explained the various challenges that made it difficult for the party to hold its conference last year but assured that Congress will not delay.
He said the process of constitutional review requiring consultations and solicitation of view had been labourious, which is the reason why the conference didn’t come off last year.
