CPP & PNC revive coalition plans for 2016 elections

The CPP and the PNC have been in talks for years in a bid to form a coalition

The Convention People’s Party (CPP) has revived its plans of forming a coalition with the People’s National Convention (PNC) ahead of the 2016 general election.

The two Nkrumahist parties have been in talks for years over the issue but that has since not yielded positive results.
Months ago, the CPP announced that it had given up all hope of entering into an alliance with the PNC.

” When you are in the political arena you don’t take anything off the table particularly where you have people who are like minded. You will seek to work together with them. So we will always seek to work together with other Nkrumahist parties,” General Secretary of the CPP, Nii Armah Akomfrah told 3FM.

“It is not unrealistic that we will seek to work together in one shape or another. We do not want to form an impression that if we don’t do this, then we are not ready for power,’’ Mr. Akomfrah said, and dismissed assertions that they have little time to make this happen.

The General Secretary of the People’s National Convention, has meanwhile welcomed the fresh call by the CPP.

“It is not something new. It is not something we are surprised about. But we believe that it is achievable. My hope is that this will not take more than a month to achieve. We just need to hasten the process,’’ Atik Mohammed said.
