CPP Urges Samller Parties To Unite

indexThe Convention People’s Party (CPP) is calling on other smaller political parties (Nkrumaists) in the country to capitalize on the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government’s poor performance and the internal rift within the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and unite to win the 2016 elections.

“This should be considered a sign for the smaller parties to rise and save Ghanaians from the two main political parties”, it said.

The Nkrumahist parties, the CPP, the People’s National Convention (PNC), the Ghana Consolidated People’s Party (GCPP) and the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) have resumed merger talks ahead of the 2016 general elections.

Similar talks in the past were suspended due to the timing and other unresolved dynamics within the respective parties.

However, following the violence which broke out at the NPP’s headquarters in Accra last Tuesday, the General Secretary of the CPP, Ivor Greenstreet urged Nkrumahist parties to focus on how to take advantage of any opportunity presented to them.

“Certainly, when your competitors have the kinds of internal difficulties both within the ruling government and the largest opposition party, it is a sign,” he said.

Mr. Greenstreet advised the smaller parties involved in the merger talks to display unity of purpose to present a viable alternative to Ghanaians.

“We must come together to show Ghanaians…a unity of purpose, unity of ideas and offer a vigorous way forward to try and solve the myriad of problems we all can see,” he said.

Mr. Greenstreet maintained that the development has presented a “significant opportunity” because the populace is in dire need of deliverance from the current government.

According to him, opportunities have been doubled, but was quick to add that the smaller parties have a lot of work to do, but there is hope.
