I haven’t endorsed any NDC flagbearer aspirant – Rawlings

Former President Jerry John Rawlings has denied endorsing some aspirants who have declared their intent to contest for the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) flagbearer and national executive officers positions.

“The attention of the office of former President Jerry John Rawlings, has been drawn to publications in the media claiming the Founder of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has endorsed certain personalities who are campaigning for the roles of party flagbearer and national executive officers.

“The Founder of the NDC wishes to make it clear that he has not endorsed any individual or group vying for roles in the party,” the statement said.

He further indicated that the “consultative process which was initiated by the Council of Elders will not be stampeded.”

“This should allow the party to pave way for the emergence of true and committed patriots, whose objective and focus is to re-establish the noble core of our tradition and values,” the former President said.

 

NDC to elect flagbearer on December 7, 2018

The NDC announced that in December 2018, there will be the election of its flagbearer for the 2020 presidential election.

General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, said the date is in line with what their constitution proposes.

“We have taken note of our constitutional requirement to choose our Flagbearer, 24 months before the next elections and the constitution not having been amended yet, we can safely calculate our timelines from 7th December 2020, so that will bring us back to 7th of December 2018 for a choice to be made on who leads our party into the next general elections.”

 

Already, some members of the NDC have declared their intention to contest as flagbearers.

The list of about eleven persons so far includes former President, John Dramani Mahama.

Below is the statement from the former President 

RAWLINGS HAS ENDORSED NO CANDIDATE

The attention of the office of former President Jerry John Rawlings, has been drawn to publications in the media claiming the Founder of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has endorsed certain personalities who are campaigning for the roles of party flagbearer and national executive officers.

The Founder of the NDC wishes to make it clear that he has not endorsed any individual or group vying for roles in the party.

He reiterates that the consultative process which was initiated by the Council of Elders will not be stampeded. This should allow the party to pave way for the emergence of true and committed patriots, whose object and focus is to re-establish the noble core of our tradition and values.

The media is urged to crosscheck information concerning the former President before publication to avoid the dissemination of false and propaganda related material, especially during the campaign for national office holders in the NDC.
