Former President Rawlings on Wednesday paid a courtesy call on the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II and later the Bantamahene, Nana Amankwaatia V, to seek their consent to hold a rally at Bantama.
Issues discussed included the role influential traditionalists had to play to ensure transparent, free and fair general election on December 7.
At Manhyia Rawlings appealed to Ghanaians to scrutinize presidential candidates before voting them into power as that will eliminate politics of lies and atrocities and ensure lasting peace and harmony.
He noted that choosing a national leader is quite different from the process leading to the selection of a traditional ruler where kingmakers vet the person to ensure that the right person is selected to lead them to glory and honor.
A statement issued by Kofi Adam, Special Aide to former President Rawlings quoted Otumfuo Osei Tutu II as advising the Electoral Commission not to connive with any political party to mar the December polls but prepare adequately to avoid technical challenges.
