CPP Unlikely to Field Presidential Candidate in 2024 Election

The Convention People’s Party (CPP) is facing significant challenges that may prevent it from presenting a presidential candidate for the upcoming December elections. Sylvester Sarpong-Soprano, the CPP’s Director of Communications, revealed this development during an interview on Asaase Radio, attributing the issue to ongoing internal conflicts and multiple court cases.

Mr. Sarpong-Soprano highlighted the party’s struggle to organize and resolve its internal issues, with only a few months remaining before the election. This disarray has made it difficult for the CPP to select a flagbearer.

Despite these challenges, Mr. Sarpong-Soprano remains hopeful that if the party can overcome its obstacles and present a candidate, it stands a good chance of success, especially considering Alan Kyerematen’s recent departure from the New Patriotic Party (NPP). He drew a parallel to the 1979 election, when a split in the NPP allowed the CPP to take advantage of the division.

“I am not sure we can present a candidate for 2024 because of what is occurring in the party. The party persistently has not been able to organize itself due to repeated court cases challenging the chairman and leader. Unless something dramatic happens within the party, I don’t see how we can field a presidential candidate,” Mr. Sarpong-Soprano stated.

He added, “The NPP has been split, with Alan Kyerematen going his way, similar to Dr. Paa Willie in 1979. We believe that history is repeating itself, and if we were organized on the ground, we could replicate our 1979 success.”
