Sekondi (W/R), May 12, GNA – Mr Bright Akwetey, a Convention People’s Party (CPP) Presidential Aspirant, has said the merger with the People’s National Convention would boost the electoral fortunes of the two parties in the forthcoming elections.
He said both parties believed in the same ideology and he is prepared to work with them when elected as Presidential candidate for the party adding that he preferred that the two parties would have a common Presidential candidate for the coming elections.
Mr Akwetey noted that all the Parliamentary candidates in the two parties would have to be merged to improve their electoral fortunes.
He said if elected as a Presidential candidate, he would work with the rank and file of the party without discriminating against those who did not vote for him.
