The People’s National Convention (PNC) is celebrating being placed 9th on the ballot paper for the 2020 General Election after insisting that the number signifies the rebirth of Ghana.
Ahead of the December 7 polls, the Electoral Commission (EC) had the balloting for the qualified political parties at its head office in Accra on Tuesday, October 20, 2020.
At the end of the exercise, the PNC ended up 9th on the ballot paper with the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the main opposition party, the NDC picking the first and second slots.
