The People’s National Convention, PNC has postponed its National Delegates Congress to 9th December this year.
The congress, which was slated for this Saturday has been rocked by several challenges with the electoral process and legal suits. A legal suit filed on Monday, sought to place an injunction on the congress.
National Executives of the party had been unyielding to calls for a postponement until remaining regions hold their congresses. However, after an emergency National Executive Committee Meeting on Tuesday, the party resolved to postpone the congress to clear the current hurdles it is faced with.
General Secretary of the party Bernard Mornah indicated that “it is eminent that we have fallen short of the two-thirds of constituencies in the country that are required for the National Delegates Congress…
“NEC therefore has decided to adjust the congress date accordingly so as to allow the other regions to conclude their remaining congresses by December 2nd 2011.
“NEC has decided that congress now be tentatively rescheduled for the 9th -11th December 2011.”
Tuesday’s NEC Meeting also adopted the Vetting Committee’s report to clear all aspirants for the congress but failed to pass controversial member and aspirant to the chairperson slot, Dr. Sumtin Tobigah.
It has however appointed a team to hold talks with Dr. Tobigah on a possible end to the legal battles he has waged against the executives.
