NPP to launch manifesto next month

john boaduThe acting General Secretary of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), John Boadu, has revealed the party’s much anticipated manifesto for the December general election will be unveiled on October 8.

Mr. Boadu made the revelations in an interview on Wednesday and added that the launching would be done in a grand style.

Recently, the party said it would delay the release of its 2016 election manifesto to prevent plagiarisation by the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC).

The NPP’s Director of Elections, Peter Mac Manu, explained that the party suspected the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) would take ownership of policies in the NPP manifesto alleging that in 2008 the ruling party did that.

He said the free Senior High School policy was the brain child of the opposition party and not the NDC but the NDC rejected this allegation.

The NDC is yet to launch its manifesto, having postponed an August 28 date to unveil the policy document. The party has now settled on September 17.

The two main political parties have always disagreed over the originators of one or two policies in the run-up to general elections.
