A total of forty-three parliamentary Aspirants of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Western Region have picked nomination forms to contest the Parliamentary primaries.
The nomination exercise which opened on Wednesday February 21 and closed on Friday, February 24 would kick the final processes of the party’s internal elections to elect presidential and parliamentary candidates for the NDC slated for May 13, 2023, to contest on the ticket of the party in the 2024 General election.
Mr Joseph Nelson who made this known to the GNA in an interview could however not readily give the constituency breakdowns on those who picked nomination forms.
He said this was the first time the party had used an online system to pick nomination forms for candidates, but that the exercise went on smoothly without any challenges.
The Regional secretary said each aspirant has a grace period of one month to process and file their forms.
He wished all the Aspirants well and urged them to carry out their campaigns devoid of violence.
Mr Nelson said the aim of the party was to win back power and that it was not time for them to fight among themselves.
