The Convention People's Party promises it will provide a level playing field for all its aspirants to market themselves to ensure that the one whose policies and aspirations appeal to the delegates is elected to lead the party to wrest power from the New Partriotic Party.
According to the party, it will initiate policies and programmes to make the party attractive to the electorate to ensure that the CPP wins the presidential election and as many seats as possible in Parliament.
This, according to the party, will make it possible for the party to initiate programmes that will meet the aspirations of Ghanaians.
The Deputy General Secretary of the CPP, Mr John Benjamin Daniels, who made the pledge during the Ashanti Regional Delegates Conference to elect executive members, said the resolve of the CPP to win both the presidential and parliamentary elections was on course and, therefore, advised its presidential aspirants to focus more on their visions and aspirations in their campaign strategies.
The delegates elected a veteran politician, Mr Samuel Danso, as its new Ashanti Regional Chairman.
Mr Danso, who is a Lay Preacher of the Methodist Church, polled 196 votes to beat his close rival, Mr Yaw Boafo, an educationist who polled 125 votes, while Mr Akwasi Prempeh also polled 89 votes.
Madam Serwaa Kyiritwie polled 153 votes to become the first Vice-Chairperson. She defied all odds to defeat her opponent, Mr Kwabena Anim, who polled 121 votes.
The Second Vice-Chairman position went to Alhaji Abass Salifu, who polled 278 votes to defeat his opponent, Mr Peter Jackson.
Mr Akwasi Boateng Bosmpem polled 207 votes to become the Regional Secretary. He beat his closest challenger, Mr Daniel Essien, who had 202 votes.
