NDC poised to capture lost seats in 2020 elections but…Sam George

Ahead of the 2020 Parliamentary elections as the Minority National Democratic Congress (NDC) prepares to choose its Parliamentary candidates slated for August 24, 2019.

Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram, Samuel George Nartey  has said the NDC is possible to form the Majority side in the eighth (8) Parliament looking at the abysmal performance and state of affairs of the current Akufo-Addo led government in the country.

He was however quick to point out in an interview that, forming the Majority in the next Parliament, “it would not come on a silver platter, it is going to take hard work, dedication, strategy focus to achieve it”.

“It would not just happen for happen stands, it would happen by away considered deliberate policy to capture those seats we lost in the 2016 election, yes the field is ripe for taken, but we need to have harvesters in the field to harvest the field”. 

The incompetency that has characterized this government you realized that there is a lot of dissatisfaction of the general population, and especially the first timers New Patriotic Party (NPP) lawmakers are going to suffer for it, he stated.

Then Majority side of the House NDC before the 2016 Presidential and Parliamentary elections, lost  forty-nine (49) seats to the then Minority NPP and they formed the Majority now in the House.

In a related development, as to whether MPs on the Minority side of the House had gone for their Ghana card when they boycotted the exercise in Parliament, the Ningo-Prampram lawmaker said, “We would see how things go with the Ghana card”.

He however pointed out that in his constituency, the registration exercise ended some five weeks ago but there are people who have still not received their cards. He noted that though he raised the issue on the floor of the house during its debate, it was downplayed.

“The chickens have come to roost and for me I have been vindicated about some of the challenges the Ghana card faces”.

As to whether the Ghana card would be the sole card to be used for the new voters’ registration, he noted that the court had ruled it would not be the only source but one of many.

He however lamented over the delay in the delivery of the card and added that the process should be improved, adding it was supposed to be instant but now after six weeks of registration you do not have the Ghana card.
