2024 Election Date Change: Electoral Commission Convenes Meeting with Political Parties

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...
The Electoral Commission has suggested moving the presidential and parliamentary elections from December 7 to November 7. However, the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has expressed its objection to the proposal, citing concerns about the limited time for the EC to organize a smooth election.

Sources within the New Patriotic Party (NPP) report that the party’s leadership is still in deliberations over the proposed date change.

In a noteworthy development, the NDC has reversed its decision to boycott IPAC meetings. The party boycotted IPAC sessions in 2021, accusing the EC of bias in favor of the NPP during the 2020 general elections.

However, in a recent statement signed by Fifi Fiavi Kwetey, the NDC’s General Secretary, the party announced that the decision to boycott IPAC meetings has been revoked following “enhanced consensus-building.”

IPAC meetings serve as a platform for political parties to assess election-related actions and policies, express grievances, and offer constructive feedback. The meetings also function as an advisory council for the Electoral Commission.
