The protocol breaches at the National Democratic Congress (NDC) campaign launch raised eye brows but none has been severely criticized as John Dumelo mounting the podium to address party sympathizers after party founder Jeremiah Rawlings had delivered his address.
Observers on social media platforms wondered why a baby politician like Dumelo known rather for his acting would be allowed to mount the stage immediately after colossus Rawlings had spoken.
Some felt the act was distasteful and shouldn’t be repeated but that was not all when it came to protocol breaches on the day.
Party General Secretary, Johnson Asideu Nketia had also forgotten to call out the northern regional parliamentary candidates even though he had duly mentioned the 9 other regions. He later rectified the anomaly.
Presidential candidate Mahama himself also caused a breach when he failed to acknowledge his vice sequentially while giving salutations. He later apologized and rectified same.
