I Will Not Contest For The 2020 Elections – Nduom
The founder of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom, has disclosed that he will not be contesting for President in the upcoming 2020 general elections.
The Progressive People’s Party (PPP) few weeks ago dispelled rumours that its founder Papa Kwesi Nduom will be contesting for the 2020 presidential elections.
“We urge all card-bearing members in good standing, to take advantage of this opportunity to test the waters, determine their competitive standing and check the general public’s reactions to their potential candidature”, a statement signed by Papa Kow Ackon, National Secretary said.
“We also wish to state that we do not expect Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom to become the party’s presidential candidate for the 2020 elections. Therefore, the field is wide open for all interested contenders to demonstrate the formidability of the party, in restoring Ghana’s hope and glory”.
The PPP said it “has earned the most votes at the presidential and parliamentary levels only behind the duopoly, since 2012, when the party was formed”.
“We are determined to improve upon this past performance, as we batten down, ready to form the next government and be represented in parliament.”
