The Western regional branch of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has recorded the highest number appeals with seven in the just ended vetting processes of the parliamentary candidates.
This is followed by the Greater Accra and Oti regions with four appeals each.
A statement from the National Communications Bureau of the party explains the Appeals Committee of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) begins today, Thursday, April 13, 2023, across the country.
“However, committees can decide to use either Thursday or Friday for the exercise,” the statement indicated.
The statement explained that “there are no appeals in the Upper West, Upper East, Savannah, Bono East and North East regions.”
“Additionally, some regions have only one or two appeal cases. These regions include Ashanti, Northern, Volta, Western North, Ahafo and Bono. Ahafo has one case while Bono, Volta, Northern and Ashanti have two each. Eastern region has three,” the statement added.
The NDC said “as a result of the above, the following decisions have been taken:
1. All appeal cases in the regions will take one day each.
2. Appeal Committees in regions with zero cases have been disbanded.
3. Committees have also been reshuffled and minor changes in membership made in some.
4. Appeal Committee Chairpersons should contact administration for appeals from their regions.
