The 2016 PPP National Convention will be held at the Accra International Trade Fair Centre, La, Accra, on Saturday July 16, 2016, at 9am.
At the Convention, the 2016 presidential candidate, Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom, and PPP parliamentary candidates from all over the country will be outdoored.
The 2016 political platform and election manifesto of the party will be adopted and officially launched.
Under the theme: ‘Jobs for Every Ghanaian through Competent and Incorruptible Leadership’, the national convention will be attended by 5000 delegates and serve as the launch pad for the party’s 2016 presidential and parliamentary election campaigns.
Speakers at the convention include the party’s National Women’s Coordinator, National Youth Coordinator, National Secretary, National Treasurer, and National Chairman. Other invited political parties and civil society organisations will make solidarity statements.
High points of the gathering include introduction of the party’s parliamentary candidates, adoption of the policy statement/manifesto and the presidential candidate’s speech, which is expected to cover a wide range of policy visions offering solutions to the nation’s numerous problems, and send a clear signal to the people of Ghana and the international community that the PPP is capable and ready to form the next government.
The PPP was formed in February 2012 and has since been offering alternative policy visions and seeking the opportunity to implement an efficient agenda for accelerated change that is built on incorruptible leadership, education, healthcare and jobs.
It will implement the agenda in the spirit of inclusiveness that will use the best Ghanaian brains, full participation of women, youth, and people living with disabilities, and above all a leadership that is incorruptible.
