PNC urged to continue with unity talks with CPP


Accra, June 6, GNA - The National Executive Committee of the Peoples' National Convention (PNC) has called on the leadership of the Party to move ahead with the unity talks with the Convention Peoples' Party (CPP).

It said the talks should be along the lines of the understandings so far reached in the draft Constitution and the Joint Nkrumahist political platform documents.

The call was made in a resolution adopted at the end of the Committee's meeting in Tema last Saturday to deliberate on the merger talks involving the two parties.

The resolution signed by Mr Gabriel Pwamang, General Secretary of the Party said the merger was necessary " realising that total unity between the CPP and the PNC is necessary for the regrouping of all Nkrumahists both in and outside Ghana." " Noting that regrouping of all Nkrumahists forces behind a concrete progressive political programme is required in order for the Nkrumahist political movement to re-emerge as the dominant political tradition in Ghana," it added.

It said their support for the merger was in the recognition that the country's history at this particular time bore tremendous prospects for the resurgence of the CPP tradition as the only alternative capable of ensuring real development and giving hope to the people.
