The disqualification of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), the People’s National Convention (PNC) and the All People’s Congress (APC) by the Electoral Commission is a divine opportunity to unite the Nkrumahists fraternity, the National Chairman of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Professor Edmund Delle has announced.
Speaking in an interview on Wednesday, Dr. Delle stated that the CPP was disappointed and shocked by the disqualification of the three Nkrumaists parties who for now cannot participate in the December 7 presidential election.
“This is the moment to show solidarity with each other.”
He, however, pointed out that their disqualification, even though unfortunate, provided them the opportunity to come together as Nkrumaists parties, dialogue and unite ahead of the polls.
“We should learn from our mistakes. It is not in our interest as Nkrumaists parties to walk on separate ways. United we stand, divided we fall,” he noted
According to the CPP Chairman, “this is the moment for our brothers and sisters of Nkrumaists lineage to go back to the drawing board and see whether we can talk and see the way forward, just in the event that they are not cleared by the courts so that they can come solidly behind us”.
The EC on Monday announced at a press conference addressed by its chairperson, Charlotte Osei, the disqualification of 12 presidential nominees for not properly filling nomination papers.
They include Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom of the PPP, Edward Mahama of the PNC and Hassan Ayariga of the APC.
