The New Patriotic Party (NPP) held a press conference, Monday on the upcoming December 17 referendum to allow for a multi partisan local government election in Ghana.

They expressed their shock and outrage at the NDC’s sudden U-turn announcing a ‘NO’ campaign on the upcoming referendum to amend Article 55(3) of the constitution.

The amendment is to allow political parties to also freely contest in the local government elections and for voters to be able to hold political parties directly accountable for their stewardship at the local and not just the national level.

The NDC leadership had earlier organised a press conference canvassing for Ghanaians to vote “No” in the upcoming referendum.

Meanwhile, in a sharp rebuttal, the NPP conference today sought to state the position of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) on the upcoming December 17 referendum and to, particularly, address, the unfortunate “complete U-Turn” by the National Democratic Congress.

The conference concluded by making a strong case for a ‘YES’ vote and called on the NDC to return to the consensus table.
