- NPP sets up a committee to review the party’s outstanding performance in the 2016 polls
- The committee is also expected to come out with detailed report to form the basis for the party’s 2020 campaign
- The 10-member committee will be chaired by Dr Adusei Poku, a lecture at the University of Ghana
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has commissioned a 10-member committee to look into the pros and cons of the party’s performance in the 2016 election.
According to acting general secretary of the party, John Boadu, the committee has been given six weeks to review their performance in the just ended elections and present a report and recommendations as to the way forward.
He also added that the committee will be chaired by a senior law lecturer at the University of Ghana, Dr Adusei Poku.
“The mandate of the committee is to provide a detailed and honest analysis of the 2016 elections countrywide on structures and operations of the party at all levels.
“The committee is also expected to produce a clear concise, but detailed report to form the basis for the party’s campaign to win the 2020 presidential and parliamentary elections and beyond,” Mr Boadu added.
Mr Boadu told the media in Accra on Wednesday that a review of the party’s performance is necessary, despite its victory in the 2016 elections.
Nana Addo and the NPP won the 2016 December presidential poll with an overwhelming 53.85% of the total valid votes cast, against incumbent President Mahama’s 44.40%.
This massive defeat has led to the NDC setting up a committee which is already looking into why the party lost the polls, and what could be done going forward to ensure their return to government.
