The Council of Elders was extremely concerned when the party’s national executive elections in December devolved into a slander campaign.

Before the 10th National Delegates Congress at the Accra Sports Stadium, the party released a statement, iterating:

“Council wishes to remind all contestants that acting contrary to laid down rules and regulations will carry severe sanctions, including disqualification of any contestant.”

“All contestants are reminded that the party stands supreme and this will not be sacrificed for the personal interest of any contestant, delegate, or party member.”

In light of this, Former Kumasi mayor Kojo Bonsu and former Finance Minister and Central Bank Governor Dr. Kwabena Duffuor have already announced their intentions to run, while John Dramani Mahama, who helped finance the last Congress, has been the party’s go-to candidate for the past three elections.
