The main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) would go to congress on December 16 this year to elect a presidential candidate for the Election 2008.

A press statement signed by general secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, said nominations would open tomorrow, August 17 and close on December 2.

The party has also set a September 15 deadline for persons holding party positions and wishing to contest as candidates or actively campaign for a candidate to resign their positions.

Nomination forms are being sold at two million cedis, whilst aspiring candidates are expected to pay a non-refundable deposit of hundred million cedis.

So far, two-time presidential candidate, Prof. Atta Mills, business magnate, Eddie Annan and a former presidential adviser, Alhaji Mahama Iddrisu have announced their intentions to contest the NDC's presidential slot.

Meanwhile, the chief executive of commonwealth telecommunications organization, Ekwow Spio-Garbrah, says he would make public his intentions for the NDC presidential slot by the end of September.

A GNA report quotes Dr. Spio-Garbrah as saying the matter is still under consideration.
