The Functional Executive Committee (FEC) of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is meeting today to among other things deliberate on the party’s calendar for the upcoming Presidential and Parliamentary primaries.
[contextly_sidebar id=”Ii03RU3km7YgJcCwxYoF9Qo3xcPB7Cbx”]Citi News understands that the party will decide on the proposal for the organisation of concurrent primaries in October to elect the party’s 2016 presidential and parliamentary candidates.
The FEC is proposing the expansion of the current Electoral College to include all biometrically registered members of the party.
FEC’s proposals are expected to be deliberated upon, by NEC next month after which nominations will open for the contests.
So far, there are new names popping up to contest in the Parliamentary Primaries.
Some of the names that have got the country talking are names of some media practitioners including Abeiku Santana [Mfansteman constituency in the Central region], Eric Don-Arthur [Effutu constituency in the Cetral Region] and others.
