The People's National Convention (PNC) has outlined its reform strategy aimed at securing parliamentary seats in the upcoming 2024 General Election. According to Ms Janet Asana Nabla, General Secretary of the PNC, the party is diligently working towards winning ten seats in the Northern Region.
While the specific constituencies targeted by the party remain confidential as part of its operational strategy, Ms Nabla emphasized that the PNC is confident in fielding candidates with the necessary pedigree to compete successfully. She highlighted the importance of securing parliamentary seats as a crucial step in repositioning the PNC as a serious political force capable of breaking the long-standing monopoly held by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Ms Nabla underscored the need for neutrality in Parliament, emphasizing that MPs should prioritize the interests of the people over partisan agendas. She stated the PNC's commitment to restoring the true purpose of Parliament by enacting laws beneficial to Ghanaians.
Despite losing its only seat in the 2016 General Election, Ms Nabla expressed optimism based on the promising performance of the PNC's parliamentary candidates in constituencies such as Builsa South, Sissalla East, and Talensi in the 2020 elections. She affirmed the party's determination to build on these gains and make a successful return to Parliament.
Regarding the PNC's internal elections, Ms Nabla disclosed that the party is in the process of completing its regional executive elections. She assured supporters that the internal primaries would be conducted smoothly and timely, with the national elections scheduled for March 2, 2024, followed by the presidential elections on March 24, 2024.
Ms. Nabla also hinted at forthcoming policy decisions aimed at addressing the country's challenges. These policies include proposals such as the payment of allowances to single mothers and reforms in Parliament to prevent MPs from doubling as ministers, among other constitutional reforms.
