Hanna Tetteh, Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration Minister has stated that she has no plans in contesting for the presidency on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress, (NDC).

Speaking on TV3's Hot Issue, she said, "I have said this several times...at the end of the day what is the higher position? It's either a President or Vice President. I don't ever want to contest for President and the choice of a vice presidential candidate is the prerogative of a presidential candidate and not something that you desire to do on your own.

“And I think that having had the chance to serve as a Minister is a very high position. It comes with a lot of responsibility and I am happy to have had the opportunity and privilege to be a minister."

The former Trades Minister, however, reiterated her position that she would welcome the opportunity to serve as the Vice President if a Presidential Candidate selects her.

Working as MP and Minister

"I am certainly going to contest in the parliamentary primaries in the Awutu Senya West constituency. When I win the primaries then I will go on to contest the 2016 elections. I am busy as a foreign Minister but I contest in Awutu Senya West because that's where I come from”.
