Minority political parties in the country have indicated that they are preparing for the December 2020 elections despite the threat posed by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Among them is the People’s National Convention (PNC) whose chairman, Bernard Mornah has disclosed how the party’s flag bearer will be elected ahead of the 2020 polls.
“We have resorted to the virtual phase where we are using the cloud to do most of our activities, right now, we communicate, we hold meetings on the cloud and then we take decisions thereof.
“We have started to even conduct some conferences, that is regional conferences, on the cloud so that at the end of the day the person elected from the various constituencies will now represent at the regional level and then the national delegates conference.
“What the PNC, as you are aware, is doing is that we are exploring the possibilities of doing a virtual national delegates’ congress without necessarily busing people to one location because our delegate count is almost 4,000,” Mr Mornah stated.
For the Convention People’s Party (CPP), its Acting General Secretary, Kwabena Bomfeh Jnr. noted that a team had been put in place to draft a manifesto for the December polls and the party was working, functioning and assured that they would be competing with a depth people-based manifesto which would resonate with the citizenry of the country.
“The CPP is working, the CPP is functioning and I want to believe that when all is said and done we will be out there competing with a depth people-based manifesto which will resonate with the people of this country since we have maintained that, as the architects of the Republic of Ghana.
“We know we are the best builders and that what the NPP and the NDC have sought to do is only going to mimic our yeoman example for which they have actually failed to copy very well,” Mr Bomfeh Jnr. touted.
For his part,, Kofi Akpaloo, the leader and founder of the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG), decried that the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic had slowed its campaign activities ahead of the elections, nevertheless, the party was in pole position to contest the elections saying “I will say we are ready for the elections, it is just the COVID-19 that has caused us to hold up a little bit other than that we would have gone round the whole country by now to send our message of hope.
“The few people that we have been able to reach in the Volta Region and in the five Northern regions have received us very well, we are ready; our team is ready, our logistics are ready, and everything is ready.
“We are just waiting for the President to come out and say we can now have social gathering and stuff like that and then we will take it from there but I can tell you for a fact that we are poised to win the elections,” Mr Akpaloo assured. -citinewsroom.com
