Former President Jerry John Rawlings is asking delegates voting in the nationwide constituency elections of the opposition National Democratic Congress to elect credible executives who would be committed and uphold the core values of the party.
In a statement issued by Kobina Andoh Amoakwa, Head of Communications at the Office of the Former President, said Mr. Rawlings urged delegates to take the process seriously.
â€œThis 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.
â€œI 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.â€
The former president who is also the founder of the NDC said the openness and smooth conclusion of the electoral process would be an indicator of the partyâ€™s readiness for the selection of national level officers later this year.
â€œOur choices must reflect the face of a rejuvenated NDC desirous of moving on from the challenges that cost us dearly in 2016.â€
He prayed, â€œI wish all delegates and candidates well and pray that the process would be incident-free. May the best candidates win.â€
