One of the flagbearer hopefuls of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sylvester Mensah, has advised delegates of the party to choose â€œcompetent and capableâ€ persons who can push the partyâ€™s agenda at the local level, as the NDC prepares for its constituency elections this weekend.
According to him, choosing the right executives to lead the party at the constituency level will put the NDC in a good position to reclaim power in 2020.
In a post on Facebook, Sylvester Mensah said: â€œAs you go to the polls, endeavour to elect competent and capable persons loyal to the party and not individual interests. The destiny of the party depends on the decisions you make this weekend and I have absolute confidence that you will give the party the best set of executives who will lead us to victory 2020.â€
He expressed some concerns with the â€œcomplaints and reports about how some groups of persons are seeking to vitiate the process in order to subvert the interest of the larger party and for parochial interests.â€
He however commended the partyâ€™s leadership for working towards ensuring that these concerns are addressed ahead of the polls.
â€œIt is assuring to see that party leadership at the national level is working to address these avoidable occurrences. We call on all stakeholders to ensure a level-playing field for all aspirants to make the process credible and acceptable by allâ€.
