The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has called on Ghanaians to fully participate in District Level Election expected to he held across the country on Tuesday December 19, 2023.

In a statement signed by the National Chairman of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah catalogued a number of reasons that has contributed to the low turn-outs in last District Assemble Elections.   

“Ghanaians will be going to the polls on Tuesday, 19th December, 2023 to elect new Assembly and Unit Committee members who will constitute the various Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies over the next four years.

“This exercise is an integral part of our governance processes, and indeed forms the fulcrum of Ghana’s local and decentralization governance, which was birthed by the first government of the Fourth Republic, under the able leadership of His Excellency Jerry John Rawlings of blessed memory,” Mr. Nketiah stated.

According to him Ghana’s local government system has been acclaimed on the African continent for giving true meaning to governance and participation in development at the local level.

“The NDC has however observed with concern, the extremely low level of public interest in tomorrow’s elections which will mark the eighth time since we started holding District-level elections in Ghana. The reasons for this generally low euphoria on the part of Ghanaians towards tomorrow’s election are not far-fetched.”
