NDCs Releases Full Time Table For Re-Organisation Activities

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) re-grouping after its comprehensive defeat in the 2016 election, will begin in November with the registration of members at various branches, after it scrapped its biometric register in favour of a manual process of registering members of the party.

The National Executive Committee had unanimously agreed to scrap the register citing credibility issues.

Recommendations made by the Kwesi Botchwey Committee, which was set up to probe NDC’s loss in the 2016 elections, also contributed to this development.

The registration will be followed up with an audit of the register in January 2018, and then branch elections on January 21 and 28, 2018.

Nominations for national executive positions will be opened from March 1 to March 9, 2018, ahead of the national congress from July 27 to July 29, 2018.

The swearing-in of elected executives and a National Executive Council Meeting  has also been scheduled for August 9, 2018
