The event will be held in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.

This is a follow up to the Annual National Delegates Conference in August this year, at which various proposals were made for amendments to the party’s constitution.

Reports have it that, some members of the party have called for a review of the party’s electoral college system to ensure that the same number of delegates who vote for the party’s national executives, also vote for the selection of their presidential candidate.

Others have also called for a review of requirements for qualification to the constituency and regional executive position.

They want only persons who have gone through the ranks of the party at the local level, to be given the chance to vie for such positions.

Over 5,000 delegates including founding fathers and patrons of the party, Members of Parliament on the party’s ticket, Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives, and national officers of the party, are expected at the conference.
