The Convention People’s Party’s (CPP) Parliamentary candidates in the Volta Region on Tuesday asked its supporters to vote for the National Democratic Congress’s (NDC) John Atta Mills in the December 28 Presidential Runoff.
Mr Emmanuel Azinogo, the Party’s National Second Vice-Chairman and Parliamentary Candidate for Ketu-South, announced the group’s decision when he addressed party supporters and media at Viepe in Aflao.
He said they were of the view that Professor Mills had all the attributes required of a President.
Mr Azinogo said the CPP would not repeat the “miscalculated support” it gave to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2000 Presidential runoff.
Mr Joseph Wemegah, Regional Organizer of the Party, said support for Professor Mills by CPP members was the best they could offer to push the agenda to re-unite the country, fight corruption and protect the interests of the vulnerable, who formed the majority of the Ghanaian population.
