Delegates of the Convention People’s Party (CPP) will today head to the polls to elect a flagbearer who will lead the party in the November general elections.

The delegates’ numbering over 2,000 will converge on the Trade Fair Center in La, Accra, to cast their vote.

In all, four people are vying for the flagbearer position of the CPP.

They are, immediate past chairperson and daughter of Ghana’s first President and founder of the CPP, Samia Nkrumah, immediate past general secretary, Ivor Greenstreet, two-time defeated flag bearer and lawyer, Bright Akwetey  and President of Providence Canada, a Canadian telecommunication company Mr Joseph Agyapong.

The leadership of the party says the CPP has worked hard over the past three years to become the third force in Ghana’s politics and thus, they are poised to wrestle power from the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Meanwhile, disqualified flagbearer aspirant and brother of Ms Nkrumah has secured a court injunction to stop the congress from taking place.

Onzy Nkrumah accused his sister of masterminding his disqualification from race.

Defending his actions in a radio interview, Mr. Nkrumah said the court injunction is only aimed at “improving the party and increasing the fortunes of the CPP.”
