Party executives and some officials at the Castle had already converged before President Mahama arrived.
Officials were tight lipped about the issues to be discussed at the cabinet meeting but it is expected that the subject concerning a running mate and other pertinent party issues will come up.
Before the meeting, President Mahama, led a prayer and a minute silence for the repose of the soul of Professor John Evans Atta Mills.
In the prayer, the President said sometimes there are opportunities in adversities. It is hoped that the death of President Mills will present the party and the country as a whole with good tidings to enable his vision, the Better Ghana Agenda, to be continued.
