National Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Solomon Nkansah says the NDC will cancel the double track system after the party wins the 2020 elections.

He said the policy will not grant every Ghanaian student access to secondary education, a situation he says his party will change in the second year of being in power.

The policy is also aimed at addressing challenges with the implementation of the free Senior High School policy.
