Description:
The National Democratic Congress is a social democratic political party in Ghana, founded by Jerry John Rawlings, who was Head of State of Ghana from 1981 to 1993 and the President of Ghana from 1993 to 2001. The NDC was formed ahead of elections in 1992 and 1996 returned Jerry John Rawlings to power. Rawlings' second term ended in 2001. His Vice-President, John Atta Mills, placed second in the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections, winning 44.6% of the vote on the second occasion. In the general elections held on 7 December 2004, the party won 94 out of 230 seats.

On December 21, 2006, Mills was overwhelmingly elected by the NDC as its candidate for the 2008 presidential election with a majority of 81.4%, or 1,362 votes. Ekwow Spio-Garbrah was second with 8.7% (146 votes), Alhaji Mahama Iddrisu was third with 8.2% (137 votes), and Eddie Annan was fourth with 1.7% (28 votes). In April 2008, John Mahama was chosen as the party's vice-presidential candidate.

The NDC's party symbol is an umbrella with an eagle's head on top. Party colors are red, white, green, and black.
