Accra, Oct. 3, GNA – The main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) has tentatively fixed October 9 for the launch of its Manifesto at the Accra International Trade Fair Centre.
The manifesto seeks to focus on solutions, put-together by Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the NPP’s Presidential nominee, and the Party to “help fix the myriad of problems facing the country,” Mr John Boadu the NPP’s acting General Secretary, has stated.
Highlights of the Manifesto hinge on how to resolve the unemployment problem among young Ghanaians.
A Programme outline, obtained by the Ghana News Agency in Accra, indicates that at 1200 the Party would hold a forum for Civil Society and Identifiable Groups, Embassies and Diplomatic Missions and Political Parties at the Unique Events Palace, Trade Fair Centre.
The actual launch would start from 1400 hours, and would be climaxed later in the afternoon with a major political rally, which would be opened to all supporters and members of the public.
Personalities, including former President John Agyekum Kufuor, Nana Akufo-Addo and his running mate, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia would address the forum.
The analysis of the NPP Manifesto is captured under the Ghana News Agency project “GNA Tracks Elections 2016,” which seeks to educate the electorate on the various issues raised by political parties, the elections management body and other governance institutions.
The GNA Tracks Elections 2016 Project also seeks to ensure gender and social inclusion in national politics and also provide voice for the youth, vulnerable groups, opinion leaders and the broader spectrum of the society to contribute to peaceful elections.
The GNA Tracks Elections 2016 project has also created a platform to analyse the manifestos of all political parties and provide in-depth news items on each thematic area, as captured to the electorates for them to make an informed judgement.
