The National Democratic Congress (NDC) will conduct its internal elections after completing the issuance of electronic identification cards to its members as part of measures to digitise the party’s membership records.
It has directed its members to replace their old ID cards by May 15, 2022 to pave way for the registration of new members ahead of the internal elections.
Peter Boamah Otokunor, Deputy General Secretary, NDC, said the party would hold its branch elections soon after the records of 4.5 million members had been digitised because the old ID cards were obsolete.
He explained that “the new cards will be the only recognised identification card for the party’s internal elections since the digitisation processes will help the party to track and strengthen its management systems at all levels and help to strategise for future elections.
“Previously we had manual registers that were kept only at the branches and do not interconnect and communicate with other areas, which makes it difficult in preparing strategies because when you need information you have to struggle and with the current system we have developed is convenient.
“You can know what is happening in every polling station, constituency at the same time which makes the work more efficient and effective, the party is confident by fixing its management systems and the challenges identified in the 2020 elections, it has a better chance of securing victory in the 2024 presidential election,” Mr Otokunor intimated.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has released the timetable for its internal elections.
The party said it will start the processes with the verification and update of its registered members, which will end on Sunday, May 15. A limited registration of new members will also be held from May 21 to June 17, 2022, and the activities will be climaxed with a national congress in November, 2022
This was contained in a press statement issued by the party on Tuesday, May 10, and signed by its General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah.
The statement indicated that the processes have been approved by the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party.
