The Opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), says it will not accept any proposal to change the election date from December 7th to November. 

The Electoral Commission has tabled a proposal to change the election date from December 7 to November 7 in response to petitions from groups such as the Seventh-day Adventist Church. 

The first major reaction to the development comes from Director of Elections for the NDC, Dr Omane Boamah who says the NDC will only back a “comprehensive review” of the Electoral process and not cherry-picking reforms.

“We (NDC) do not support the November date for elections. ⁠Instead of cherry-picking, we (NDC) call for a comprehensive review of the electoral process through inclusive and proper dialogue; we already submitted our proposals to the EC’’.

‘’On voting on prayer/worship days, we (NDC) are open to discussions. NB: Details of Election Years, Days, & Voter Turnout since 1992

‘’On 1992- Tuesday 50.16 %, 1996 Saturday 78.20%, 2000 Thursday 61.74%, 2004 Tuesday 85.12%, 2008, Sunday 71.00%, 2012 Friday 79.43%,

The EC tabled the proposal for November before Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting held on Monday, January 22, 2024, where the Electoral Commission suggested a shift in the election date as well as well as declaring that day as a national holiday.
