Veep President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur, says the National Democratic Congress, (NDC) is integrating the party with grassroots participation, hence the policy to hold separate congresses for its Women and Youth Wings.NDCdc

He said the policy would also encourage grassroots participation and allowed democratisation of finances for the party?s campaign in the 2016 general election.

Vice President Amissah-Arthur was addressing National Women Delegates Congress of the NDC in Wa to elect a National Women Organiser and two Deputies for the party.

He urged the delegates to continue to mobilise resources for the 2016 campaign and urged them to take the best decision and elect the best women to lead them to help the party to win the 2016 polls.

Mr Johnson Aseidu Nketia, General-Secretary of the NDC hinted that the party has plans to rotate its congresses all over Ghana and urged the women to put the experiences that they would learn from the Wa Congress to test in the next events.

He said some people are asking why the NDC is holding its elections tot by tot but the reason behind it is to give opportunity to women to decide what is good for them.

The General Secretary said it is an opportunity for NDC Women and Youth to decide who their leaders should be without any interference and to complement whatever decision they had embarked on.

?Usually women are always the few, as they allow men to choose leadership positions for them.

?It is for this reason we want women to be independent and decide who their leaders are and are prepared to work with the leadership they have put in place,? Mr Nketia said.

He said it is the hope of NDC to make women leadership a higher decision making organ in the party, because since independence women have been living under the rule of the minority men.

Mr Nketia told the delegates that the congress is very important for the victory of the NDC in the 2016 elections, pointing out that decisions made in Wa would determine whether the party would win or not.

He reminded the delegates that ?why you can choose your action, you cannot choose the consequences of your action?, urging them to learn to resolve conflict situations as quickly as possible.
