Mahama may not participate in IEA debate

The governing NDC has strongly indicated that it may not participate in the presidential debate organized by the Institute of Economic Affairs.

The National Organizer of the party, Kofi Adams criticized the think-tank for failing to consult the party on the programme.

“IEA cannot just announce a programme, it has not engaged the party on. We are surprised… So if the party has their own programme how are you going to organize it”?

The IEA barely 24 hours ago had revealed that it is considering holding a separate debate for the presidential candidates of the two major political parties; NDC and NPP.

The estranged relationship between the IEA and the governing party is an open secret.

The NDC has branded the civil society body as an appendage of the opposition NPP.

In 2015, General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia criticized the IEA for denying him the opportunity to contribute to a discussion on corruption.

Kofi Adams said the IEA has various platforms for leaders of all political parties one of which the Chairman of the NDC chairs.

He said the party expected the IEA to consult their leader before making pronouncements on the debate.
