Despite endorsing the Presidential candidature of his wife for the 2012 elections, former President Jerry John Rawlings remains Founder of the NDC, a minister has said.
At a forum recently, Mr. Rawlings endorsed his wife, Nana Konadu Agyemang-Rawlings as the presidential candidate of the National Democratic Party (NDC).
He attacked members of the governing party, accusing them of corruption and moral decadence.
But speaking on the former president’s actions on Joy FM and MultiTV’s news analysis show, Newsfile, Roads Minister, Alhaji Inusah Fuseini, said in spite Mr. Rawlings’ decision, he remains founder of the NDC.
He said the party has rules guiding the conduct of members and detailing what constitutes acceptable behaviour.
He will neither condemn nor endorse the former president’s actions except to say that “We are observing and at the appropriate time, the party will respond.”
Commenting on the issue, Editor-In-Chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako said the standing of the Rawlingses in NDC has progressively diminished.
