The National Democratic Party (NDP) has acclaimed Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings as its flagbearer ahead of the 2020 elections.

This will be the third time, the former First Lady has been chosen by the party as its flagbearer.

At an event held in Accra on Saturday, September, 5, the Director of Elections for the Electoral Commission (EC), Dr. Serebour Quarcoo made the official announcement after due process.

Speaking to JoyNews, the General Secretary or the party, Alhaji Mohammed said, Mrs. Konadu Agyeman Rawlings emerged as the party’s choice out of three aspirants.

The virtual event was graced by former President Jerry John Rawlings.
