- On Monday, the Kwesi Botchwey Committee presented their 455-paged report to the National Executive Council of the NDC
- Among other things, the committee recommended the party go on a 'peace-keeping and healing tour'
- The NDC member agrees with their suggestions, stating it is necessary to ensure a 2020 comeback
A leading member of the National Democratic Congress has advocated for the recommendations made by the Kwesi Botchwey Committee in their post 2016 election defeat report.
According to Mr. Yalley, since the party lost at the polling stations, it was necessary to restructure the branches across the country.
He believes, as per suggested by the committee, a proper re-conciliatory system should be initiated to bring together the candidates who were defeated at the primaries, so the party could move forward.
According to a report by Citi FM, the NDC member suggested the party's headquarters be turned into a coalition point, to enable smooth flow of information during the next elections.
"Some of us are of the view that no activity should take place outside the party headquarters because during the elections, many people have problems that they have to rush to the party headquarters to explain, but when they go there, nobody is there and everyone is at a coalition centre elsewhere. We are advocating that in the next election, the party headquarters should be the location for all activities," Mr. Yalley stated.
On Monday, the NDC's election defeat investigation committee led by Prof. Kwesi Botchwey presented their final findings to the party's leadership at their headquarters.
The report, titled 'Listening to the voice of the Grassroots,' highlighted the areas where the party lost its faithful, while making some recommendations on what the party should do to gain back their supporters.
Among them is a proposed healing tour, where the party should select 'credible and eminent' party members to lead the tour.
The committee further recommended that the party restore the 'integrity' of their Biometric register, since according to some disgruntled members in the party, the register was invaded by names of persons who were non-NDC members.
