NDC Primaries: Chereponi Opens Nomination On September 9 After Suspension

The Functional Executive Committee (FEC) of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has announced that persons interested in picking up nomination forms for the upcoming parliamentary election in the Chereponi Constituency can do so on Monday, September 9, 2019.

The main opposition party in the country started a progressive process to elect members that will aspire to win Parliamentary seats during the 2020 General Elections last month.

Some regions could however not hold their elections after executives of the party decided to put their primaries on hold.

The Chereponi Constituency which was affected by that directive has now been given the green light to start the process towards the election of a competent Member of Parliament aspirant.

In a press statement, the party noted, "The Functional Executive Committee (FEC) of the National Democratic Congress announces the notice of elections for the conduct of Parliamentary Primary elections in the Chereponi Constituency, in accordance with Article 41(1) of the NDC Constitution”.

Below is the full statement:
