NDC -NPP Polarization At The National Level Should Not Be Extended Into The District Level-JDM

Former President John Dramani Mahama has emphatically stated that the National Democratic Congress will continue to reject president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo’s proposal to amend the constitution to make Ghanaians vote to elect Metropolitan, Municipal, district chief executives on party lines.

Former President John Dramani Mahama who has already accused the president of polarizing the country insisted that the national democratic congress will not allow polarization at the district assembly level and that they still want the district elections to be non-political.

Mr Mahama further asserted that it would be unfavourable to introduce party colours at the district assembly level, however, the president can appoint over 3 persons who the party believes fit for the job and then introduce them to the public service commission and after interviews, there can be an election to elect one person to represent the MMDCEs, with this the National Democratic Congress will support but to hold a general election on party basis at the district assembly level is highly unacceptable Mahama said.’

"It is our well-considered view, and indeed that of well-meaning Ghanaians, that the needless NDCNPP polarization at the national level should not be extended into the District Assemblies and Unit Committees, which is what will happen if we vote to make the local government system partisan."

Former President Mahama furthers the Akufo Addo administration as the worst form of the democratic era in the history of this country looking at the recent confusion during the confirmation of current MMDCEs.
