NDC targets 170 seats in Parliament

By on

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is targeting majority seats in the next Parliament after the December 2020 general election.

The plan, according to the Deputy General Secretary, Peter Boamah Otokunor, is to capture more parliamentary seats in the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) strongholds to increase NDC’s seats to 170 in Parliament.

As part of the opposition party’s agenda, it has opened parliamentary nominations in all constituencies across the country effective July 12, 2019.

Speaking on Adom FM’s morning show, Dwaso Nsem programme, Tuesday, the Deputy General Secretary said they were hoping that only vibrant and results-oriented candidates would be elected for the primaries.

According to him, the NDC has a solid, credible and realistic campaign message and that the party is poised for victory in 2020.

He said the NPP is a party specialised in confusion, lies and deception, therefore, Ghanaians would make a big mistake if they vote for President Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP again.

He was convinced given the strategies put in place with a marketable candidate like former President John Mahama, 2020 elections would be ‘cool chop.’

On what aspirants have to do, the NDC man said all aspirants must satisfy the constitutional requirement which qualifies one to be a Member of Parliament.

He said all aspirants must also satisfy the requirements of the party, adding that no one would be disqualified based on normal procedural errors.

The parliamentary primaries are expected to take place on August 24, 2019 at all the 275 constituencies across the country.
