I’ll install real-time collation system in 2024 for NDC – Duffuor
Flagbearer hopeful for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Dr. Kwabena Duffuor has told party delegates to elect him as the Presidential candidate of the party if they want a real-time collation system during the 2024 general elections.
This is in response to some challenges encountered by the party in collating results during both the 2016 and the 2020 general elections.
Many party activists have blamed a weak results collation system and incompetent leadership for the defeat of the opposition party in the past two elections, at both the polling stations and at the Supreme Court.
But the former Finance Minister under President John Atta Mills has vowed to fix the problem of timely and accurate results collation with state-of-the-art technology.
He was speaking during a campaign tour of the Greater Accra region as the NDC prepares for its Presidential and parliamentary primaries on May 13, 2023.
In 2016, the NPP, then in opposition, installed a real-time collation system with state-of-the-art technology which enabled them to go ahead of the Electoral Commission to announce themselves as winners.
Their results were later upheld and confirmed by the official EC declaration.
The former Bank of Ghana governor believes that the opposition NDC can equally do the same or even better in 2024 with the right leadership in place.
Many have commended Dr. Kwabena Duffuor for a policy-guided campaign devoid of acrimony as he stakes his claim to the leadership of the National Democratic Congress.
