Founder and former president of the opposition National Democratic Congress, NDC, Jerry John Rawlings left masses who attended the ongoing Delegates Congress stunned as he left the event after delivering a relatively uninspiring speech which is uncharacteristic of him.
The speech which lasted for nearly 5 minutes, however, indicated that it would take a revived the passion to return to power in 2020.
” The NDC needs to revive the passion it once had to return to power in 2020 but this can only be realized if we listen to ourselves,” he said.
He then added that he had to leave the event to attend to something else but wishes all delegates well.
The party anthem was played for him as he shook hands with some delegates after which he was escorted out of the premises amid cheers.
The highly anticipated event will see over 9000 delegates are expected to take part in today’s polls. This year’s national executive elections will see some changes in key positions, including the election of the vice chairman.
The position of the national chairman will have three vice chairpersons instead of six as prevailed in the previous elections.
The party has also changed its voting pattern where one form is used to vote for several positions for different candidates. Each vote will be exclusive to a candidate.
A total of 65 persons are vying for various executive positions.
