The Dormaa Central Constituency of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has introduced measures to ‘weed out’ disloyal members, to make the party stronger to be able to win the parliamentary seat in 2024.
Mr Dominic Adomah, the Constituency Organiser, said “the issue of uncommitted constituency executives has been identified as one of the party’s major challenges and threats to building a winning team capable of taking the seat in the 2024 parliamentary election.
The constituency organiser, who announced these in an interview with Ghana News Agency, at Dormaa-Ahenkro, in the Bono Region, said the NDC was re-organising and preparing toward election of branch executives.
He said the NDC had mapped out effective strategies to break the more than 20 years of dominance of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the constituency.
Mr Adomahstated that the NDC was strengthening the checks and balances with regards ‘to registration processes to make it difficult for unfaithful people to use dubious means to get their names on the register.
He stated that the NDC, as a party that was formed out of a revolution and played a role in restoring democracy to the country, in 1992, had embraced “the idea of working with democratic principles such as probity, accountability and transparency.”
Mr Adomah said the party was aggressively tackling the phenomenon where members “crossed carpet” to the ruling NPP but still posed as committed members by ensuring only registered members would be allowed to vote and contest for executive positions.
He said about 3,500 cards had been issued to registered members across the 135 branches in the constituency.
Mr Adomah said the team in charge of the registration exercise had identified challenges confronting the constituency.
He said the branch elections would be held on Monday, August 8, 2022, to be followed by the constituency election at a date yet to be fixed.
