'We insist on early elections now!' - Pro-NDC Group

A pro-NDC group calling itself "Add My Vote Campaign Volunteers" has petitioned the leadership of the opposition National Democratic Congress to hold an early congress to elect new leaders for the party.

The group expressed doubt about the leadership qualities of the current executives of the party, stating emphatically that the "party leadership does not have the moral commitment to lead any meaningful reorganization of the broken structures of our great party if any".

They want an early election to usher in a strong team of leaders with the "commitment to pursue the ideals of the party to inspire and motivate the grassroots to commit their support for the success of the party toward Elections 2020".

Read full statement below:

PETITION

Dear Sir,

A CALL FOR EARLY ELECTIONS TO SAVE THE NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS (NDC) IN OPPOSITION NOW

The Add My Vote Campaign Volunteers Network on behalf of the over 1.5 million core party faithful whose respect for fairness, probity, accountability and social justice in our dear party decided not to vote during the 2016 general elections to end the political evil being perpetuated by the leadership of our great party against the grassroots.

With this background, we humbly write to petition the National Executive Committee (NEC) through your noble office as a matter of urgent assembly a meeting to consider and adopt a road map for early elections since the grassroots believes that the current party leadership does not have the moral commitment to lead any meaningful reorganization of the broken structures of our great party if any.

And that, we must go for early elections to elect new leaders with the commitment to pursue the ideals of the party to inspire and motivate the grassroots to commit their support for the success of the party toward Elections 2020.

It's our fervent hope that this humble petition by the grassroots to the party leadership shall be considered crucial and also in the best interest of the party.

We insist on "Early Elections Now".

We count on your noble office for action.

Long live Ghana, Long live the NDC, Long live the Founder of our great party.

Yours Faithfully,

Kwantwi-Barimah Edmund Founder

The Founder National Democratic Congress (NDC)

General Secretary Head Office (NDC)

Chairman National Executive Committee (NEC)
