At the party’s primaries held on Saturday, August 22, 2020 in the Eastern Region, Mr. Greenstreet garnered 213 votes against Bright Akwetey’s 27 and Divine Ayivor’s 14 votes.

The lawyer will once again battle with incumbent President Akufo-Addo and leader of the main opposition National Democratic Congress John Mahama.

In 2016 when he first contested in the presidential polls on the ticket of the CPP, he came fourth out of seven candidates with 25,552 votes representing 0.24% of the valid votes cast.

The party also elected new executives to steer the affairs of the party in the next four years.

Nana Akosua Frimpomaa Kumakuma, the 2012 running-mate to then flagbearer Dr. Abu-Sakara got the nod to become the CPP National Chairman.

Nana Yaa Akyimpim Jantuah also beat acting General Secretary, James Kwabena Bomfeh popularly known as Kabila to become the substantive General Secretary.

While Nana Yaa Jantuah polled 187 votes, James Kabila Kwabena Bomfeh managed only 67 votes.

Onsy Kwame Nkrumah, a son of the founder of the CPP also lost in his bid to become Vice Chairman of the party after polling 84 as against Emmanuel Ogbojor’s 125.
