The NDC is expected to hold a crunch meeting on whether suspended Deputy General Secretary, Kofi Adams should be allowed to contest the Buem constituency bye-elections on its ticket.
The issue came up during vetting of aspirants for the seat won by late regional minister Ford Kamel.
Rawlings’ spokesman was suspended in March last year following a leaked tape recording in which he was alleged to have said he will work to ensure late President Mills’ defeat in the 2012 elections.
Volta regional executives of the party are tight lipped but the Regional Chairman, Kwesi Aboagye told Joy News their focus is on the Akatsi primaries.
He said the decision on Buem vetting will be taken by the National Executives on Tuesday.
The NDC National Organizer, Yaw Boateng Gyan said a fair decision will be taken as soon as possible to bring the matter to rest.
He would not say categorically whether he considered Kofi Adams as a member of party except to say that the party will take a final decision next week.
The Buem Constituency became vacant after the demise of the MP, Henry Ford Kamel who was also the Volta Region Minister.
