To increase its seats in Parliament, the Convention People’s Party (CPP) is re-strategizing.
Ivor Greenstreet, the General Secretary of the party, indicated in the news media, that the party is active in getting some willing and strong aspirants who will be victorious in the 2016 parliamentary elections.
According to him, “We can obtain eighteen thousand votes and still lose an election so the most critical is how to focus less logistics and less money that we have in comparison with the leading opposition party and the governing party and how we target those resources to the main areas and make sure that we get some talented candidates who will be the winners in parliamentary elections come 2016.”
After the 2008 elections, the only Member of Parliament for the Convention People’s Party, Samia Nkrumah lost her Jomoro seat in 2012 to Emmanuel Kofi Armah Buah, the present minister of energy.
Nonetheless, Mr. Greenstreet described that the party is preparing measures to recover the Jomoro seat.
He emphasized, “The party is concentrating on getting back the Jomoro seat and working out other seats to grow our representation in Parliament,”.
Addressing at the party’s congress, Mr. Greenstreet stated people are still trooping in from numerous regions to take part in the congress.
“The tension and excitement is gradually increasing. The several buses from the Northern part and Western region have appeared.”
The congress will visit the Sunyani polytechnic campus and about 2,500 representatives from all ten regions countrywide are anticipated to participate in the event.
