PPP’S BRIGHT RED SUN IS SHINING!

The Progressive People's Party (PPP) is without a doubt the political party on the rise in Ghana. The PPP held its first National Convention in Accra on Saturday 25th February this year and after less than 90 as a political party certified by the Electoral Commission, the party of the progressives is gaining strength in the hearts and minds of Ghanaians throughout the country. The bright red sun is gaining strength from community to community with its Ghana first, one nation, one people attitude. The party's concentration on better quality education, eradicating preventable diseases and creating jobs hits a positive chord in every village, home and family in Ghana.
Ghanaians are highly disappointed in the manner with which the NPP and Mills-led NDC Administration have engaged in the business as usual blame game over the difficulties being experienced in the economy. We wish to place on record with the media and the public in general that one way to stop this dangerous game is to expand the political space to allow other political parties to participate in public discussions about important national matters such as the economy and job creation. It is no coincidence that the approval ratings of the NDC and the NPP keep going down. The PPP is proving to be the best alternative to the status quo as we have prepared ourselves very well to offer good implementable ideas and solutions.
The national leadership of the PPP is greatly satisfied and encouraged by the positive response and support of Ghanaians during our ongoing national tour. The PPP is deeply disturbed by the enormous task left undone across the country. The level of deprivation, poverty and inhumane conditions across the country contrasts sharply with the political talk and propaganda by those who wish to take credit for work they have not done. It was obvious to us throughout the tour that the PPP is unique. It is the only political party that is going to the people to discuss what its people can do to unite the country, raise the quality of Ghanaian life and solve the problems that confront us - no insults, respectful of others, no inciting people to violent behavior yet aggressively organizing and gaining strength from community to community.
The PPP will focus on the community-based approach to campaigning with a strong focus on winning parliamentary seats and enough presidential votes to participate in a second round of voting come December. We believe that our presidential approval rate and potential votes will rise into double digits next month and rise steadily as Ghanaians get to know us better.
Clearly, Ghana needs the progressive, pragmatic approach of the PPP to keep the value of the cedi and restore human values.
