He would not however reveal the identity of the candidate, except to say the candidate involved has been spoken to and has accepted to partner him in the December elections.
According to Hassan Ayariga the candidate was supposed to have been named in August but the untimely death of president John Mills meant she would have to be named in September.
The CPP's flagbearer, Dr. Abu Sakara said he will choose his running mate before the end of next month.
On his part, the PPP's flagbearer Paa Kwesi Nduom has also confirmed the name for his running mate will soon be announced.
According to him the party is still in deep thought to find an efficient partner for him ahead of the elections.
