Nduom: No Party Can Win 2012 Elections ‘One-touch’
The flagbearer of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Dr Paa Kwesi Nduom, is emphatic the 2012 elections will go into a run-off.
The leader of the PPP said “they are going to work seriously all over the country so that no political party is going to be strong enough to win this election in the first round. Our goal is to work hard so that we will compete in the second round.”
“The PPP will hold the balance of power in Parliament, which means we are working seriously to place our members in Parliament to be the deciding factor in Parliament,” he told Accra-based Joy FM.
According to the former MP for Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abrem, the PPP has invested time and resources to strengthen themselves and are firmly on the ground competing with the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the biggest opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP).
He further said the PPP will definitely be one of two parties in the run-off of the December polls.
Dr. Nduom said “there is not going to be any one-touch victory for anybody. As a result of that we are taking our shots, we are taking our territory and we are deciding where we are putting our time in.”
Dr. Nduom asked Ghanaians to give the PPP the opportunity on December 7.
Meanwhile, President John Dramani Mahama has said the ruling NDC has been ordained by God to win the elections in the first round.
