Ezenator Rawlings picks forms to contest NDC primaries

Dr. Ezenator Rawlings, daughter of former President John Rawlings has finally picked forms to contest the Korle Klottey primaries of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC).

The forms were picked on behalf of the social activist Friday evening, Starr News has learnt.

The ruling party will hold its parliamentary and presidential primaries on November 7.

Dr. Rawlings will have to beat the incumbent Nii Armah Ashietey to keep her hopes of annexing the seat alive.

Meanwhile, pollster Ben Ephson has advised her to keep her father away from her campaign if she is keen on winning the seat.

“She has a good chance of winning the seat if she wins the primaries. But she must not involve her father too much; for the simple reason that there are certain NDC members whose families suffered under the June 4 and 31st December issues.

“On her own, she can campaign and win. If she involves her father, she is likely to suffer reactions from her father’s past,” Ephson told Kafui Dey on Morning Starr Thursday.
