PROGRESSIVE PEOPLE'S PARTY (PPP) READY FOR AN ALTERNATIVE POLITICAL FORCE







National Chairman, Nii Allotey Brew Hammond addressing the press



The Progressive People’s Party (PPP) has declared its willingness to form a viable alternative political movement in Ghana. This was announced at a press conference held by the party on Monday, March 13, 2017 at its National Headquarters in Asylum down, Accra. The decision was arrived at after the National Committee of the party approved a resolution to work to establish a strong, viable alternative political movement in Ghana.



The PPP believes that alternating power between the NDC and the NPP while implementing essentially the same policies and winner-takes-all attitude to governing the country will not strengthen our economy and improve the standard of living of the ordinary Ghanaian. 



Hence, there is the need to join forces together with other political parties and individuals to break the NDC and the NPP duopoly.



In view of this, the party is inviting like-minded progressive political parties and individuals to discuss and reach agreement to forge an alternative to the NPP and the NDC to contest election 2020 and beyond.



Addressing the press, National Chairman of PPP, Nii Allotey Brew Hammond said, “There are many reasons why this has become an urgent matter at this time.  The 2016 election campaign and results have proven the point that Ghanaians want an alternative to the political parties that have won elections since the beginning of the Fourth Republic but they want to see a united front that is formidable and one they can feel can win elections.  Indeed, the 2008 elections gave this same indication that the people wanted change but felt their choice of the change agent was limited.  Therefore, it is our considered view that in 2008 and 2016, the NDC and the NPP won the respective elections by default, not because they offered the best policies and people.”



This situation, the PPP want a united front of like-minded people to change by coming together to offer change the people can feel AFTER elections.
