The NDC was defeated by the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

And the committee, it was gathered, is expected to come up with plans to prevent future occurrence.

It is chaired by former Minister of Finance and Chairman of the National Development Planning Commission, Prof. Kwesi Botchway.

Prof. Botschway was chosen after a meeting of the National Executive Council and the Elders of the party in Accra on Wednesday.

The NPP candidate Nana Akufo-Addo defeated the incumbent, President John Mahama up to 53.85 per cent of valid votes cast.

The supporters of the NDC are still in wonderland as to why their party was defeated heavily at the December 7, polls at the hands of the opposition NPP.
