The Interim Chairman of the newly-formed National Democratic Party, Dr. Josiah Ayeh has described the National Democratic Congress (NDC’s) reaction to their association with the Rawlingses as ill-informed.
The ruling party in a statement last week said media reports linking its founder to the new party are mere speculations.
But Dr. Ayeh maintains the Rawlingses are key members who will show their faces in the next few weeks.
He told Joy News’ Elton Brobbey that many of the NDP’s leaders were not coming out as yet because the Electoral Commission was not yet to finalise the registration of the party.
“They ought to have waited for the dust to settle to see exactly what is going on in the new party; they hardly have any information; of course because of the panic in their ranks right now things like that have to be expected,” he stated.
He explained the NDP was holding on with the registration of new members and other announcements because of a delay in their certification by the Electoral Commission.
He said as a lawyer, he wanted to ensure that the registration was legally and properly done before taking other steps.
