The Convention People’s Party (CPP) will head to the November polls with Ivor Greenstreet as flagbearer.

Mr. Greenstreet was elected on Saturday by the over 2,500 delegates of the party.

He floored former chairperson and daughter of the party’s founder, Samia Nkrumah and two other contestants; two-time defeated flag bearer and lawyer, Bright Akwetey  and President of Providence Canada, a Canadian telecommunication company Mr Joseph Agyapong.

Mr. Greenstreet polled 1288 to become flagbearer while Ms Nkrumah secured only 579 votes.

Political commentators tipped Ms Nkrumah to win despite accusations from some quarters within the party that she was dividing the party.

The 2012 Presidential candidate of the party, Dr. Abu Sakara resigned early this month after he making claims that a “personality cult club was being built around the ambition of an individual.”

“The sole purpose of this seems to begin a process of leadership by dynastic succession,” he said in his resignation letter.
