Voting has finally commenced in the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) youth and women’s organizers’ elections after several hours of delay.
The voting process delayed due to a supposed injunction and disagreement over the delegates’ list for the election necessitating a crunch meeting between the leadership of the party and the aggrieved camp.
An ensuing fight occurred which resulted in one supporter of the party sustaining some severe injuries.
About 1,500 delegates of the NDC are gathered at the University of Cape Coast to elect the leaders for the youth and women’s wing of the party ahead of the National Congress scheduled for the Accra Sports Stadium on December 17, 2022.
