The founder and leader of the National Democratic Party – NDP, Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings would be running unopposed for the flagbearer slot of the party at its congress which kicks off today.
Sources within the party have confirmed to tv3network.com that since nominations were opened, no party member filed to contest for flagbearer except Nana Konadu.
Positions being contested for include flagbearer, Secretary General, Communications Director and Women’s Organiser. The event would be held at the Trade Fair Center in Accra.
The theme for this year’s congress is United for Change: Probity and Accountability.
Some political watchers have linked the theme of the congress to the NDP’s severe criticsm of the Mahama administration which they have described as “most corrupt”.
The National Democratic Party (NDP) broke away from the governing National Democratic Congress in 2012 ahead of that year’s elections in what appeared to have been a shock to many a political enthusiast.
Speaking on TV3, communications director of the NDP, Ernest Owusu Bempah indicated that plans are far advanced for a successful congress.
