The main opposition National Democratic Congress has deferred the launch of its manifesto for the 2020 elections to September 7, 2020.
The launch was earlier scheduled for Monday, August 31, 2020, in Accra.
In a statement signed by its General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia Friday, the NDC said: “At its weekly meeting held on Thursday the 27th of August, 2020, the Functional Executive Committee of the National Democratic Congress has fixed Monday the 7th day of September, 2020 as the date for the launch in Accra of the party’s Manifesto for the December 2020 General Elections.
“This is to enable the National Executive Committee and the Council of Elders approve the policy principles and strategies promised in the Manifesto. The event will be held virtually, in accordance with the appropriate Covid-19 regulations. It will be streamed live on various media outlets throughout the country”.
The ruling New Patriotic Party launched its manifesto for the 2020 polls in Cape Coast in the Central region last Saturday.
