PNC holds national executive elections, presidential primary in April

The People's National Convention (PNC) will hold its National Executive elections and presidential primary in April this year.


The PNC had initially set March 24, 2024, to hold it polls but due to series of conflicts that characterised the polling station elections, the National Executives decided to reschedule the elections for April this year.

Speaking to the Daily Graphic last Monday, the General Secretary of the PNC, Janet Nabla, indicated that although the party had written to the Electoral Commission (EC) to conduct the internal elections, the party had to hold on due to the inability of the EC to align its activities with the PNC’s elections.


She said the party engaged the EC to conduct the election since it was a neutral party, however, the EC wrote back to them and demanded that the party amend its dates.

“We came out with our calendar and gave a copy to the EC.

However, the EC wrote back requesting for more collaboration to arrive at a suitable timeline that would not conflict with its programme of activities.

The EC wrote back to us that we should contact their Electoral Department for the modalities” she said.

Ms Nabla said the party had subsequently written to the Electoral Services Directorate of the EC for modalities towards the conduct of the polls and were waiting for a response on the way forward for the internal elections in the PNC.

She said the letter was submitted to the EC last Friday, March 8, 2024, and added that they were expecting a meeting with the EC to determine the way forward.


The PNC in January this year announced the timelines for its internal elections with its regional and national executive polls scheduled for January 15 to 31 and March 2, 2024, respectively.

This would have been followed by the presidential primary on March 24, 2024 to elect a flag bearer for the party for the December 7, general election.
