PNC Elects Presidential Candidate In March
THE People's National Convention (PNC) has fixed March, next year, for the holding of its national delegates congress. The congress, which will feature 1,500 delegates from the 200 constituency branches of the party across the country as well as representatives of other party organs, will be used to elect national executive officers as well as a flagbearer to lead the party into the 2004 general elections. A statement issued by the PNC and signed by its General Secretary, Mr Gabriel Pwamang, said these and other decisions were the outcome of a National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the party held at the national headquarters in Accra on December 7, 2002. According to the statement, the NEC of the party has, in line with these decisions, opened, with immediate effect, nominations for the positions of flagbearer, national chairman and all other National Executive positions in the party. “It is requested that all eligible party members interested in any of these positions should apply to the general secretary, for nominations will remain open from now until February 28, 2003,” the statement said. “The NEC has also directed all constituencies in the regions that have as yet not held their congress to do so before February 28, 2003. “The NEC also wishes to use the occasion to call on all genuine Nkrumaists and other progressives to join forces with the PNC to wrest power from the NPP in 2004,” the statement urged.
