Ivor obtained a massive 1,288 votes of the 1,992 valid votes to beat his former chairperson, Samia Nkrumah who came a distant second with 579 votes in the Saturday polls of the Nkrumahist party. The others were Joseph Agyapong – 83 and Bright Akwetey 42 votes.
In a congratulatory message, the NDC said it “salutes Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah's Convention People's Party (CPP), for democratically electing comrade Ivor Kobina Greenstreet as the Party's Flagbearer going into the 2016 General Election.
“The election of comrade Greenstreet is another testimony of the CPP's resolve to continue to do its utmost best to deepen its internal democracy and also help deepen Ghana's nascent democratic dispensation.”
“The NDC salutes the 3 other comrades who contested comrade Greenstreet for accepting the will and choice of the majority of the delegates.
“We wish comrade Greenstreet well in his new and daunting role and pray that the CPP continues to remain very relevant on the Ghanaian political landscape,” Johnson Asiedu-Nketia, NDC, General Secretary said in a statement.
