Some NDC Parliamentary Candidate Hopefuls for the 2020 general elections maybe reconsidering their decisions contest if the party does not let them go unoppposed.
Information available to the Evening Mail indicates that these hopefuls who are mostly in strongholds of the ruling New Patriotic Party do not see the reason why they need to spend on internal primaries first before spending on the main elections when it is obvious they cannot win those seats.
Evening Mail’s deep throat sources revealed that some of these candidates who may back out of the race even though many see them as potentials to at least increase the party’s votes in some of these constituencies include two times Parliametary Candidate for the Akyem Swedru Constituency, Mr. Robert Ansah and the current Eastern Regional Deputy Women Organiser Tina Effah Boadi who was cotemplating contesting the Akyem Oda Seat.
Our sources revealed that the NDC is broke and for these candidates, it will be better to save the little they have than to waste on ‘needless’ party primaries.
But the party hierachy has rejected the idea completely saying it is not something that will even be considered.
Speaking with the Evening Mail, Mr. Mark-Oliver Kevor, the Eastern Regional Secretary of the party said the idea is mute at birth.
He stated that any attempt to think about that will even disintegarte the party the more. “Who will agree to stp down for who? This will be difficult and will not even be discussed at all.” He said.
“This is a party of competition. If you are ready, put yourself out for contest.” Mr. Kevor told the Evening Mail
