The Minister of Water Resources, Works and Housing, Alban Bagbin, has predicted that the ruling NDC would win the next election by 57 per cent if it were to be held today.
He posited that even though the President had a good image, that alone could not propel the party to victory, since there was the need for the structures of the party to function well.
"We cannot go into an election with a fractured party," he said. "We need each other. Let us use the forthcoming impending Christmas to patch up our differences in order to go into 2012 in unity since time is not on our side."
Bagbin expressed his disappointment at the current hostilities within the ruling party and called for immediate solutions to the problem, since the party risks losing the 2012 general election with such a divided front.
He said it was unfortunate that not much had been done to unite the camps of President John Evans Atta Mills and Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings after the party's historic congress in Sunyani which endorsed the President as the NDC presidential candidate for the 2012 elections. "Why should FONKAR and GAME be still allowed to operate after the Sunyani Congress when the National Executive Committee has proscribed their existence within the party," he questioned. "Our supporters are now disenchanted and everything should be done to unite them before it is too late," he said.
Mr Bagbin appealed to members of the party to avoid the use of foul language since such a behaviour gradually creeping into the party was tarnishing its image.
