They are also required to “uphold the decisions of the party at all levels, and subject myself to the direction, control, and command of the party.”

Additionally, the aspirants must remain loyal to the party's ideals, values, and decisions if elected as MP.

If a candidate violates the party's directives, such conduct “shall constitute anti-party behavior on my part and make me liable to be subjected to the disciplinary processes of the party and the consequences thereof,” according to the oath.

The new policy seeks to ensure that NDC MPs are committed to the party's decisions and interests and to prevent the party from being undermined by the personal interests of its MPs.
