Agents of some National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer aspirants have petitioned the party’s Elections Committee ahead of its presidential primaries slated for 23rd February 2019. The agents, in their petition, raised several concerns including the cleaning of the party’s electoral register. This has necessitated another meeting to discuss these concerns.
A member of the NDC’s Election Committee, Abraham Amaliba told Citi News ahead of Friday's meeting that the petition will not affect the upcoming election on 23rd February, 2019.
“There has been a petition from some agents of the aspirants. Not the aspirants themselves, to clean up the voters’ register which we are already doing to ensure that the total number of delegates are known. We will meet today and iron all those things out.
“I think they will need clarification on some of the issues and that is what the meeting will do. When we meet today, we will put down some points which will seek to clarify some doubts that they have but this is not going to stall any forward march towards 23rd February.”
Some six aspirants of the party had earlier petitioned the party, demanding a review of the guidelines for the upcoming election. The six had previously raised issues with the electoral register and the choice of printing firm for the ballot papers.
