PNC kickstarts major reorganization ahead of crucial 2020 poll

The People’s National Convention (PNC) has initiated steps to reorganize its rank and file ahead of the 2020 general elections.

A six-member committee, made up of PNC executives, has within the last weeks toured the 10 regions of the country to hold talks with the party members.

The PNC is the fourth political party to start the process of reorganization after its poor showing in the 2016 general elections.

The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the Convention People’s Party (CPP) are in the process of solidifying their party units ahead of the 2020 elections.

But the PNC is upbeat it will cause a major upset in next two years’ election because of the renewed commitment of its supporters.

Acting PNC General Secretary, Jacob Kwame Amoako said the party’s reticence after 2016 poll was to enable it to galvanise its support base.

“We’ve been quiet for a while not because we want to be quiet but for us to mobilise ourselves after the election and so far we’ve been to all the ten regions,” he said in an interview Monday minutes after the team arrived in Accra.

He said the party executives and members the team met during its tour narrated the difficulties they faced in the past election and cautioned against same in the future.

“They have asked us to resource them which will help them to work more efficiently,” he added.

The PNC is expected to take a decision on the committee’s report in the coming days and Mr Amoako has assured it will be communicated to the media.
