PNC considers early Congress to reposition party

Accra, The People’s National Convention (PNC) has hinted of a possibility of an early congress to elect national executives and flagbearer.

The party intends to possibly decouple the election of its national executives from that of the flagbearer towards the 2020 elections, Mr Emmanuel Wilson, Director of Communication of the Party, stated at the weekend at a media briefing after the Party’s first Standing Committee Meeting, in Accra.

He said the Party’s consideration of an early Congress was to reposition the party for victory in the next election.

Mr Wilson said the Party had instituted a three-member committee to present details of the Standing Committee Meeting to the National Executive Council (NEC) for approval.

He said the Committee also approved the Sub-committee members’ proposed by the NEC at its last meeting.

The Communications Director said the committees were the Disciplinary Committee, Finance Committee, Welfare Committee, Communication Committee, Political Committee and the Legal Committee.

He said Standing Committee had directed these committees to have their first meeting to appoint their chairpersons and committee secretaries.
