After successfully electing its branch and regional executives, the NDC has scheduled November 3, 2018 for the election of national executives. It will take place at the Accra International Trade Fair Centre. Currently, about 11 candidates including incumbent Deputy General Secretary, George Lawson, have picked forms to contest for the position. But Mr. Worwui-Brown, who is also a lecturer at Accra Technical University, believes his message of resurrecting and empowering the grassroots of the party will be accepted by delegates. “My vision is that we want to link up with the grassroots, the party these days hasn’t linked up with the grassroots and that has been one of the major challenges we have had,” he said on 3FM. “The NDC is a grassroots party that is leaving its focus and also we need to carry the message from the grassroots to the leadership of the party so that they can listen.” He added: “I am somebody who has worked with the tertiary institutions for several years and I know what students want and what their needs are. If you realized, in 2016 too we lost votes at the polling stations of the various tertiary institutions and that has worried us a bit and I think with my experience with students, lecturers and as a patron of TEIN, I have what it takes to be able to link up with students and colleague lecturers ahead of 2020”. He believes under his leadership as the Deputy General Secretary, the party’s vision of reclaiming power in 2020 will be realized. “Agenda 2020 is a must for the NDC and I think if I get the platform I can help in winning power for the party, in 2020,” he stated.
