The National Executive Council (NEC) of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) have today 29th November, 2018 set 19th January, 2019 as the date to go to polls to elect their flagbearer for the December 7, 2020 general elections.
Information gathered by News Cencord, picking of forms will cost GHC 20,000 and submission of forms GHC 400,000 for a prospective flagbearer.
However, picking of forms and submitting same would not necessarily guarantee the aspirants name on the ballot paper. There would be a rigorous vetting to prune the aspirants in case there are more aspirants picking forms and submitting same.
Since the filing fees became known to the public, some NDC sympathizers are agitating that this is a ploy to discourage a number of the aspirants to the advantage of John Dramani Mahama.
