The main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has extended the deadline for the submission of nomination forms for its national delegates’ conference by an additional two weeks.
The decision, according to General Secretary of the party, John Asiedu Nketia, follows an advice by the Council of Elders of the party, at its emergency meeting.
This means the 5 September deadline has now been extended to 19 September 2018.
Mr Nketia, during a media interaction at the party’s headquarters in Accra, also announced that the Council of Elders have also advised that the delegates’ conference be held on 3 November 2018 at the International Trade Fair Centre in Accra.
So far, about 100 aspirants have picked forms to contest for the various executive positions in the party.
