He explained that per the rules of the party, the presidential candidate, national executives, and council of elders of the NDC will have to come together and select the person.
“What I will say is that, just like custom has it, our party also has processes to select candidates for various roles.
“It is the Presidential candidate, National executives, and Council of Elders who come together to select a running mate. But that process will start next year,” he said while replying to calls to select his running mate from the Bono Region.
The Queen mother of Sunyani Nana Akosua Dua Sika Asor Brayie earlier appealed to him to select his running mate from the Bono Region.
She told Mr Mahama that the people of Bono Region have supported him and the NDC over the period, hence would want him to reciprocate that support by choosing his vice presidential candidate from the region.
“The Traditional Council supports him. I would like to make an appeal to him, we know he loves the Bono Region because his wife comes from here. We have selected vice president from other places for quite some time, but we want him to choose his running mate from this region this time,” she said at a public engagement with Mr Mahama in Wenchi as part of his building the Ghana Together tour.
