The proposal by the Electoral Commission (EC) to move the election from December 7 to November 7 has been met with opposition from the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Instead, the NDC is advocating for a thorough examination of the election process through appropriate and inclusive discourse.
The NDC claims that the proposal was included in a document that was turned in to the EC on Monday, January 22, 2024, at the Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting.
Dr. Edward Omane Boamah, the party’s director of elections and information technology, saw a Facebook post on Wednesday, January 24.
“We (NDC) do not support the November date for elections. Instead of cherry-picking, we (NDC) call for a comprehensive review of the electoral process through inclusive and proper dialogue; we already submitted our proposals to the EC,” Mr. Omane Boamah noted.
