Rawlings may join NDC campaign for election 2012
Former President Jerry John Rawlings may campaign for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and its Presidential candidate, John Dramani Mahama for the 2012 general elections, Spokesperson Kofi Adams has hinted.
There have been doubts as to whether the former President, who is rumoured to be a founding member of breakaway National Democratic Party (NDP), will join the NDC's campaign for the December polls.
Jerry Rawlings made a historic appearance at the party's extraordinary congress in Kumasi to affirm the candidature of President John Dramani Mahama as flagbearer and in a speech, he urged all members to come on board to campaign for the party to win the elections.
Kofi Adams speaking on Election Headquarters on Joy FM Friday hinted that, just as it has been with past elections, the former President may join the party's political process for the elections.
“President Rawlings has in all our elections campaigned and I'm sure he will be part of the political process for the 2012 general elections,” he hinted.
The Spokesperson indicated that former President Rawlings, however, wants everybody in the party to join the campaign especially those he said “sit in their air-conditioned rooms and offices and some leave the country when it is getting to elections with excuses of health, must all realize that they have benefited from the toil of people. They should also join in, it should not be left on him alone.”
