Accra, Jan. 25, GNA - The Convention People's Party (CPP) on Wednesday reiterated its commitment to merge with the People's National Convention (PNC).
"For the avoidance of doubt, the CPP wishes to state emphatically that its commitment to the merger with the PNC and other progressive and Nkrumaist forces is resolute," the CPP said in a statement signed by Mr Kwesi Pratt Jnr., Chairman of the Publicity Committee.
"Both the Central Committee and National Executive Committee of the Party have already endorsed the merger pact along with a new constitution and transitional arrangements for the merged political parties," it said.
The statement said similar structures of the PNC had also endorsed the unity pact and the two parties were expected to convene their respective national congresses early this year to give final approval to the merger. "The Convention People's Party urges all its members to remain calm and to work diligently for the merger of all Nkrumaits and progressive forces even in the face of extreme provocation." 25 Jan. 06
