Minority leader, Haruna Iddrisu has lauded the performance of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the December 7, 2020 elections.
While giving tribute to former President Jerry Rawlings who doubles as founder of the NDC, the Tamale South legislator noted the NDC’s performance was heartwarming despite the founder’s death a month before the polls.
“For me as a young member of parliament, what warms my heart is that even one month into the death of president Rawlings, the National Democratic Congress fared well and performed well in the competitive elections of December 2020 with 137 – 137 (equal number of seats as NPP in parliament).
“It means our great party has been born and birthed as a major political force in our constitutional democratic process.
“On my own behalf and on behalf of the National Democratic Congress caucus in this house, I render sincere sympathies to the president and the good people of Ghana on the departure of our former head of state,” he added.
