- The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has postponed the party’s flagbearer election slated for Saturday, January 26
- According to the party, it's in court to settle a case brought against the NDC by two members
The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has indefinitely postponed the party’s flagbearer election.
The party was originally set to go to the polls on January 26, 2019 to elect its flagbearer for the 2020 general elections.
However, they have been forced into postponement until an impending court case against the party is resolved.
The NDC was dragged to court last December by two of its members, Abdallah Issah and James Kabu Nartey-Oman over the guidelines governing the party’s presidential primary.
But the party and the plaintiffs had earlier agreed on an out-of-court settlement.
A Deputy National Organiser of the NDC, Kobby Barlon disclosed this when he appeared before an Accra High Court on Monday.
The GNA reports that the party is now set to set a new date for its flagbearer elections.
Former president John Mahama is among seven aspirants to have filed nominations to contest the NDC flagberarership.
The others are Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin, Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Professor Joshua Alabi, former Vice Chancellor of the University of Professional Studies, Sylvester Mensah, former Chief Executive Officer of the National Health Insurance Scheme, Nurideen Iddrisu, a Businessman, Dr Ekwow Spio-Gabrah, former Minister of Trade and Industry and Mr Goosie Tanoh.
