Commenting on the recent calls by some leading supporters of the party for an early congress that will restore faith in the leadership of the NDC, Benjamin Kunbuor said that these calls for changes should not be ignored.

He was speaking on TV3's News 360 when he said that the leading supporters or 'cadres' are a significant branch of the party.

He supported their suspicions that corruption was among the factors leading to the defeat of the NDC,stating, "it was not only there [but] it had been deep. This perception had also been bought over by some of our members."

Dr Kunbuor further shot down rumors of his willing to stand in the next executive election for the position of flagbearer and urged party members to cease the name-throwing of possible candidates.

He said the rumors are "not informed signals," and the decision to contest would be solely his.
