Preparations For 2020 Elections Should Start Now--CPP Volta
The Volta Region Executives of the Convention People Party (CPP) has called on the Central Committee of the party to commence preparations towards the 2020 Presidential and Parliamentary Elections in order not to lose time.
To be able to wrest power from the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), the group is suggesting that the various functional committees of the party must start effective organization and mobilization at the grassroots immediately.
The call was contained in a resolution signed by six Regional Officers and 42 Constituency Officers at the end of a day's meeting and copied to the Ghana News Agency in Accra, on Tuesday.
The group called on 'the national leadership and the Central Committee of the party to take immediate steps to resolve all differences in the party in order to bring about full reconciliation'.
The statement said the major cause of the woeful and sad performance was the lack of unity and cohesion in the party, as well as the divided Nkrumahist front.
'We note with grave concern that the party once again performed abysmally in the 2016 National Elections obtaining well below one per cent of the Presidential votes and failing to win even a single Parliamentary seat.
'We hereby resolve that the national headquarters of the party should renew efforts to bring about total unity of the Nkrumahist Parties namely the C.P.P., People's National Convention and the Progressive People's Party,' it said.
