PRESIDENT JOHN Evans Atta Mills on Saturday confirmed his popularity in the NDC by chalking an emphatic electoral victory over Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings in the party’s presidential race.

He has therefore set the stage for another electoral duel with Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

He polled an incredible 2771 votes out o the 2861 of the total votes cast to retain the NDC flagbearer position, at the expense of his competitor Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings who polled 90 votes.

President Mills will once again face Nana Akufo-Addo in the 2012 election.

The two dignitaries faced each other in the 2008 general election which President Mills won with less than 40,000 votes to help the NDC unseat the NPP.

In the last general elections, the battle between the two astute politicians was so keenly and closely contested that none of the two candidates was able to clinch a first round victory, with the polls spilling over to two three rounds.

Despite winning the first round with a comfortable margin of over 100,000 votes, the NPP could not get the 50 percent plus one votes needed to take the presidential seat because it lost its majority in parliament, providing ammunition to the NDC to run away with victory.

In the second round, the NDC pulled a big surprise by leapfrogging the NPP in terms of votes to snatch an important political victory which saw Prof. Mills become president.

Nana Akufo-Addo has since that defeat sustained his campaign and popularity and has managed to win the NPP’s flagbeareship position again, after comfortably beating Alan Kyerematen in the NPP primaries.

Currently, Nana Akufo-Addo, who is so eager than ever to attain a political victory for the NPP, is on a nationwide tour dubbed ‘Listening Tour’ with his campaign team.

The tour is aimed at, among other things, helping the NPP flagbearer know, at firsthand, the challenges and concerns of the Ghanaian populace so that he can factor them in his policies and plans for the presidency.

Reports reaching DAILY GUIDE indicates that Nana Akufo-Addo’s popularity across the country keeps soaring by the day and he looks ready to unseat the NDC government in 2012.

With the election of President Mills at the NDC congress, the stage is now set for both Nana Addo and President Mills to square it off again come next year.
