NDC flagbearer showdown slated for November
The main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), has disclosed that the party will elect its flagbearer for the 2020 elections in November 2018.
This was revealed by former President John Dramani Mahama on Saturday 9 June 2018 at the party’s Unity Walk held in the Volta region.
He said the elections to select constituency executives will be held on 23 June 2018 “and I can say that the campaign is heating up and that is another step towards the reorganization of our party”.
He continued: “After that we will hold regional elections, we will hold national elections and then come November this year we will hold our final election to elect the presidential candidate of our party”.
A few stalwarts in the party or their assigns have made comments and gestures suggesting they will pitch in the 2020 race.
They include former President Mahama, former Trade Minister Ekwow Spio-Garbrah, former CEO of the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) Sylvester Mensah, , former Vice Chancellor of UPSA Prof Joshua Alabi and Second Deputy Speaker Alban Bagbin.
