NPP won't crumble after congress - Alan Kyerematen

A former NPP flagbearer aspirant, Alan Kyeremanten, has dismissed suggestions that the party will crumble after its congress to elect a flagbearer.

In his opinion, internal wranglings of this nature cannot be described as bickering because upon “a more sober reflection on what is going on in our party, three things that clearly stand out.”

Speaking to Citi News after hinting that he will contest the party’s flagbearership slot for the 2016 election, Mr. Kyeremanten who described the NPP as a “resilient party” explained that for a party in opposition to conduct itself with such “integrity, such constructiveness and provide what I believe is credible alternative to the current government, it is absolutely clear that the NPP is one of the best placed political parties.”

He was, however, hopeful that the NPP will come out of the congress strong to wrestle power from the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) in 2016.
