He, however, stated that the party is yet to consider a specific day in November for the rollout of the national executive elections.

According to him, the party is yet to complete the mopping-up exercise for the first and second phases of the branch elections.

"Now you have doctors, lawyers as well as lecturers contesting for various branch positions in the party," he added.
