PPP opens nominations for flagbearship position, Nduom ruled out from contesting

The Progressive People’s Party (PPP) has opened nominations for its flagbearership position ahead of the 2020 general elections.

The party in a statement to announce the decision said it does “not expect Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom to become the party’s Presidential candidate for the 2020 elections.” The party, which was founded in 2012 by Papa Kwesi Nduom after he broke away from the Convention People’s Party (CPP) in 2011, has at a point been considered by some as a viable third-political force to break the duopoly of the incumbent New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Since its formation, Dr. Nduom has been the only flagbearer it has had. Dr. Nduom led the party into the 2012 and 2016 general elections.

The party in the statement said “all interested contenders are encouraged to express their interest publicly and on our various party platforms” as an expedited virtual selection process will be used to elect a flagbearer.

The PPP further said it is hoping to improve upon its performance from the previous elections.

The party’s statement below:
