The General Secretary made the announcement here after an emergency National Executive (NEC) meeting here saying, the party’s workload was too much hence the postponement of the primaries to November 21.

The NDC was scheduled to have conducted its primaries to elect a presidential candidate and 275 parliamentary candidates for next year’s polls on November 7, 2015.

He explained that they had an ambitious plan for the 2016 election but it has now come to their notice they cannot meet the schedule.

The processes leading to the governing party’s primaries have not been entirely smooth as some parliamentary aspirants who were disqualified were still contesting their disqualification.

Others have also complained about the party’s biometric voters’ register alleging that the register in some constituencies contain names of people purported to be non-members of the governing party.

Some angry NDC members of the NDC in the Ledzokuku Constituency in Teshie, near here last Thursday destroyed the party’s voters’ register ahead of an exhibition exercise.

The main opposition party, the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has already elected its presidential candidate and majority of parliamentary candidates that will be contesting next year’s general election. Enditem
