Kipo Elijah Bakar, the NDC Communication Officer for Sawla-Tuna-Kalba Constituency in the Savannah region has called on all qualified NDC members to place the interest of the party over personal stuffs it prepares to begin elections.
Kipo Elijah Bakar also added that the party must put their acts together to rescue Ghana from being sunk totally by the inept NPP led government. He posited that Ghanaians will never forgive the NDC if they failed to win the 2024 general elections.
Kipo Elijah said this on Damongo based PADFM’S Kareyenchea Morning (Sunrise Morning Show) on Monday, July 25, 2022.
The NDC will on 27th July, 2022, conduct branch or polling stations elections across the region to elect new or maintain it’s executives at the grassroot level.
Kipo Elijah told the host Nuhu Zulka, that the reorganization of the NDC in the Constituency is excellently on course as it has passed through all the laid down processes.
” I think if you look at the NDC, the reorganisation processes in the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba Constituency is excellently on course in the sense that the processes involve dialogue, consensus building and elections.
There are certain cases some of the branches may not necessarily re-elect different executives but will only go through due process, so we call it reorganisation because we are trying to reorganize the party for victory in 2024″.
When you come to Sawla-Tuna-Kalba Constituency, we are going strictly by the calendar or timetable suggested to us by the party. We started the election activities on the 20th July through to 23rd July, 2022. The vetting process is on course and the elections will be on 27th July, 2022, he added.
The NDC in the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba Constituency has zoned the constituency into 10, and these 10 zones are subdivide into five (5) traditional zones to help us conduct smooth elections. This will make monitoring and supervision easier for the elections committee.
He added that all those ready to contest must be of good standing. That is to say one must be paying dues regularly or for at least six (6) months and be of good behavior.
20 forms have been given to each branch, which means the party has opened room to 20 people to contest for 9 positions. But when a branch feels there is a consensus building among themselves, the may not necessarily go through the usual elections but whoever wants to be an executive must have a form filled to contest.
He said the NDC has nine (9) executive positions in a branch; the chairman, secretary, organiser, treasurer, women organiser, youth organiser, communication officer and two other members. So we have seven (7) portfolios and two (2) undefined. So when you pick a form you indicate you region, constituency, branch among others.
