The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is scheduled to convene today, Thursday, March 7, to deliberate on the potential running mate proposed by the party’s flagbearer, John Mahama.

The meeting is set to commence at 2 pm at a location communicated to the relevant attendees.

This decision follows Mr. Mahama’s submission of a letter to the party regarding the nomination of his running mate, as stipulated in Article 45 of the NDC Constitution.

In a press statement issued on Tuesday, February 27, and signed by the party’s General Secretary, Fifi Fiavi Kwettey, the NDC also revealed that the NEC will convene after discussions with the Council of Elders.

“The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has today received a formal communication from our Presidential Candidate, His Excellency John Dramani Mahama, regarding the nomination of his Running Mate in accordance with Article 45 of the NDC Constitution.”

“In response to this communication, the party is pleased to announce that a meeting of the Council of Elders will convene at 11:00 hrs on Thursday, March 07, 2024, to deliberate on this significant matter.

“Subsequently, the National Executive Committee will gather at 14:00 hrs on the same day to further consider the nomination.”

While speculation abounds, with many analysts tipping Professor Naana Jane Opoku Agyemang to retain her position as the party’s running mate from the 2020 elections.
