The National Organizer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kofi Adams, indicated there haven’t been any regulations hindering any NDC Member of Parliament not to rally for any aspirants going for the flag-bearership position.
Speaking on Okay FM’s ‘Ade Akye Abia’ Morning Show, Kofi Adams reiterated “since there haven’t been any laws yet, a leader in the NDC party can support whomever he or she wishes till there are laws established not to do that”.
Advancing on the issue about when there will be the flag-bearership elections; he averred that, the national conference to elect the National Executives will be on 1st of September follows by their constitutional amendment. Then they will hold the flag bearer ship contest.
He further stated that, they haven’t opened nomination yet for the position but the National Executives and Council of Elders of the party have given the go-ahead to persons who wish to contest.
Mr Kofi Adams added, that is the reason EX-President John Dramani Mahama is seen going to places announcing his interest to contest again.
The National Organizer didn’t make any comment about his interest to contest again for the National Organizer position.
According to him, any aspirant needs to seek the consent of the executives before campaigning. Then the Executive will in turn inform their party structures of the place.
Mr. Adams asserted that, the contest will come off around October.
Again he stated if the leaders think someone is competent and vouch for him or her, they haven’t offended anybody.
He opined that, if supporters think otherwise, they should confront them rather than using abusive languages and insults among others.
Thus, it is needless according to Kofi Adams for people to insult the leader’s interest in a candidate.
NDC CONSTITUENCY ELECTION
In reference to their constituency elections, Kofi Adams mentioned the party are about to finish it.
He disclosed that there is a few left which may be due to a court issue or the party’s own internal challenge. “But with that it is not even up to 10 out of the 275 constituencies”.
