NDC boycotts Jean Mensa's first IPAC meeting

The main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) on Wednesday, 22 August 2018, failed to attend an Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting organised by the Electoral Commission.

ClassFMonline.com learned that all the invited political party representatives were at the meeting except that of the NDC.

The NDC, according to sources, said it felt slighted by their late invitation, thus, their boycott.

The EC, which is currently under a new Chairperson, Mrs Jean Mensa, discussed issues relating to the electoral calender at the IPAC meeting.

The Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) was instituted by the Electoral Commission in March 1994 to assemble representatives of the various political parties and members of the EC on a monthly basis, to build a cordial working relationship between the election management body and the political parties to discuss electoral issues.

IPAC’s decisions are, however, not binding on the parties in any way.
