Presidential candidate of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom, says his party is hopeful of winning more parliamentary seats in the 10 regions of the country.
According to him, the PPP fielded about 166 parliamentary candidates out of the 275 constituencies which he was very optimistic of their chances to win more seats.
“We fielded about 166 candidates. I believe that it is possible for a third of them to win seats. And I am saying to you that we will win a minimum of one seat in every region to prove that we are a national party,” he confidently said.
Speaking on Citi FM Breakfast Show in Accra yesterday, though Dr. Nduom acknowledged the strength of both the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the presidential elections, he said his party was working hard for the elections to be NDC, PPP and NPP race.
“And so in my view, there is a 30% that all the three parties can get. And then it is a matter of which one will cross that 30% line, and I believe that the PPP can cross that 30% line,” Dr. Nduom stated.
Dr. Nduom also discounted suggestions that voting for the PPP in the upcoming polls will be a waste of ballot.
According to him, a vote for the PPP rather accentuates the electorate’s passion to see a positive change in the country.
