Kwesi Botchway report out today
The 13-member Kwesi Botchway Committee probing the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) 2016 election defeat is expected to present its report to the party today, Tuesday, May 30.
The committee was set up early this year to investigate t circumstances that led to the party’s defeat and was expected to submit its report within three months.
However, the committee could not meet the deadline since it could not start its work on schedule due to some internal mechanisms that needed to be tackled before commencing the task.
The committee was also tasked, among others, to make recommendations for the restructuring and reorganization of the party to position it for the election 2020.
The committee became necessary after leading members of the party started pointing fingers at each other after the defeat of the party.
Young appointees of the Mahama administration have been blamed by key figures of the party for contributing to their defeat.
