Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings the founder of the National Democratic Party, NDP, has been spotted in National Democratic Congress (NDC) scarf when she went to file her papers at the Head Office of the Electoral Commission to contest the 2020 presidential election.
It is seeming the former first Lady cannot get over her broken marriage with the party she ones served as vice-chairperson. She walked out of the political tradition that held her in high esteem about Eight and a half years ago to form the National Democratic Congress, leaving her husband and children.
Showering praises on the Jean Mensa led Commission, Mrs. Rawlings said Ghana is lucky to have Mrs. Jean Mensa as the Chair of the Electoral Commission and that she and her party, the National Democratic Party (NDP), are happy with the work of the election management body, so far, toward the 7 December 2020 polls.
Surprisingly, Nana Agyemang Konadau Rawlings who divorced the NDC to form NDP with the focus on neutralizing the duopoly of the NPP and NDC said she is not interested in the views of the major political actors.
“Actually, I’m not interested in what other parties are saying. What we are saying is that we have been lucky to have an Electoral Commissioner who sees a bigger picture, a broader picture for the whole country and we have systematically worked toward the programme that they have given us. So, for me, I am OK with what is going on”, she told Class FM’s Blessed Sogah.
Before the Commission puts out the results of qualified aspirants, the flagbearer of the NDP described her ability to file her form as “elating”.
“We’re very happy that finally, we got everything together, we’ve presented it to the Electoral Commission”, she told journalists.
According to the Commission, the results of the qualified aspirants for the next stage would be announced to the public by next week.
As of Friday, October 9, which marked the end of the filing of nominations, a total of 17 presidential aspirants had put themselves up to contest for the presidential election in December 2020.
Three of the Presidential Aspirants who filed the nominations are hoping to go as independent candidates when cleared by the EC, while 14 are aspirants from political parties.
The process, which began on Monday, saw three aspirants presenting on Tuesday, two on Wednesday, seven on Thursday, and five on Friday, which was the close of the exercise.
