Elect credible and committed executives – Rawlings
Founder of the National Democratic Congress, Jerry John Rawlings has urged delegates to elect credible and committed leaders as the party undertakes constituency elections across all the constituencies.
The NDC is set to elect constituency executives across all the 275 constituencies in the country.
In a statement, the former President said “as the National Democratic Congress undertakes constituency elections across all constituencies in the country to elect party executives I urge delegates to take the process seriously.
“This is a process aimed at selecting persons who will manage the grassroots of our party and that process must be based on transparency, equity and fairness.
“I urge delegates to vote for credible and committed members of the party whose desire is to restore the core founding principles of truth, integrity, probity and accountability.
“The openness and smooth conclusion of the electoral process would be an indicator of our readiness for the selection of national level officers later this year.
“Our choices must reflect the face of a rejuvenated NDC desirous of moving on from the challenges that cost us dearly in 2016.
“I wish all delegates and candidates well and pray that the process would be incident-free. May the best candidates win.”
