Then on Saturday, May 13, 2023 the presidential and parliamentary elections will be held.
In a document detailing the guidelines for the election of parliamentary candidates for the next election, the NDC warned its executives against public statements in support of a particular candidate.
"No organ, institution, branch or structure of the Party shall issue any public or press statements in support of any of the contestants. For the avoidance of doubt, no Party Executive Member (National, Regional and Constituency) or any member of any organ of the Party shall issue any public statements or make any public pronouncements which have the effect of committing the support of the whole of that organ, institution, branch or structure of the Party to any contestant," the party said.
Former president John Dramani Mahama, the party's candidate for the 2020 elections, is tipped by many political pundits and experts to win the primaries.
Many cite his experience and near-victory performance in the last election against incumbent president Nana Akufo-Addo as justification for tipping him to win hands down during the presidential primaries.
Former Bank of Ghana Governor and business magnate Dr Kwabena Duffuor is considered his closest contender.
