Former President Jerry John Rawlings has re-registered as a member of the National Democratic Congress.
Mr Rawling's re-registration on Friday is in line with the party’s ongoing re-registration exercise for its members across the country.
Apart from re-registering, the party founder also paid his membership dues for the next three years.
"Founder of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), former President Flt Lt Jerry John Rawlings registered for his party membership card at the PWD branch of the Korle Klottey constituency on Friday.
"Mr. Rawlings arrived at the registration centre close to 5pm and was quickly taken through the registration process and issued with a party membership card.
"The former President also paid his party membership dues and exited the premises after about ten minutes", a statement on Mr Rawlings official Facebook page said.
The former President has been very critical of his party in the last few years but it looks like he is not planning on leaving the party.
As part of recommendations of the Kwesi Botchwey Committee following their resounding defeat in the 2016 elections, the NDC is embarking on the exercise of re-registering its members.
The party's current membership roster was found to be fraught with discrepancies.
The re-registeration exercise whih commenced in January is expected to end on Wednesday February 28.
