NDP can win 2016 election — Nana Konadu

The founder of the National Democratic Party (NDP), Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings, has declared that it is not impossible for the NDP to win the 2016 presidential election.

According to her, the change made in the Indian election recently could happen in Ghana.

Addressing party members in the Eastern Regional capital, Koforidua, last Saturday, at a swearing-in ceremony for 15 appointed regional executive members, Mrs Rawlings said the ideals on which the party was founded remained intact, and they were working at the grassroots level to increase their numbers.

In an interview later with the media, the former leader of the 31st December Women’s Movement said an NDP government would ensure transparency and justice.

“I believe that when we started the NDP it was with the conviction that we can improve what other parties were doing.

“We believe certain situations happening in Ghana needed to be changed… bringing back the honesty in Ghanaians, probity and accountability… because you can’t talk about peace when you don’t have normal justice,” the leader of the NDC breakaway party said.
