The National Democratic Congress (NDC), says it is opposed to the Electoral Commission’s quest to hold the general election in November 2024.

It said the announcement by Dr. Bossman Asare, the Deputy Chairman Corporate Services of the EC, does not reflect the irrefutable arguments that led to the consensus that any major electoral reforms should become effective in November 2028.

It adds that, whereas there was a clear consensus on 2028 as the year of effectiveness, it is untrue that the majority of political parties at IPAC agreed to the November 2024 date.

In a release signed by General Secretary Fiifi Kwetey, the party said it is therefore strange but not unexpected that Dr. Bossman will mislead the general public that “almost about 60 percent of political parties supported the proposal for elections to be held in November 2024 at the IPAC meeting held on Monday, January 29, 2024”.

The NDC noted that the IPAC needs to return to its time-honoured tradition of building consensus on crucial electoral reforms.

It said that, as it may, it is important to clarify that out of the ten political parties at the IPAC meeting, at least five (5) spoke eloquently against changing the date for elections to November 2024. It therefore urged the Electoral Commission to concentrate on germane and urgent matters, including immediately releasing the calendar for the 2024 elections as we strive for transparent, free, and fair elections in December 2024.

Chairman of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, at a press conference on the aftermath of the district-level elections, said the NPP has already been rejected by Ghanaians, and any plans to stay in power will fail. Continue reading >>>>>
