THE TERTIARY Education Students Confederacy (TESCON) of NPP has lent its support to the proposed amendments to the party’s constitution.
In a separate press release issued by the Greater Accra and Northern Regions branches of TESCON in Accra, the students noted that after carefully studying the party’s constitution, it was necessary that the proposed amendment be carried out at the impending delegates’ conference to be held this year.
The students have also endorsed the expansion of the Electoral College to engender an open participatory election of party officers from the base of the party to the top.
The release further stated that the amendments will end the situation of voter influence at any level of the party to skew the mandates of the people’s choice, which made party’s elections acrimonious. Also, it is expected to offer a sense of belonging to party members and appreciation as well as common consultation on party issues at all levels of the party.
Both regional branches however proposed that the one - slot voting right for each TESCON institution should be increased to three.
Citing reasons for the fore-going, the students said a single slot allocation for the intellectual foot soldiers of the party who work hard for the party’s activities was inappropriate.
TESCON members number between 2000 and 3000 from all the tertiary institutions in Ghana.
The students therefore urged all decision-makers in the party to consider their concerns in their bid to amend the party’s constitution.
