Mr. Emmanuel Carl Bartels, until his election on Friday, was the First National Vice-Chairman of the All People’s Party.

In his acceptance speech at a ceremony in Accra to outdoor him, Mr Carl Bartels said he believed in the ideals of the APC flag bearer and would therefore complement his efforts in winning the December 7 polls.

“I saw what he [Ayariga] had and said this program and policy objectives looked good. This policy about all-inclusive governance and realized that it has the ingredient of biding the whole country and various ideologies together,” he said.
