Madam Mary Ankomah Boakye-Boateng, Convention People’s Party (CPP) National Women’s Organiser, has added her voice to the call for early congress to elect a presidential candidate for Election 2012.
She said any further delay could be detrimental to the party’s chances of winning the election, as there is currently more work to be done at all levels, starting from the grass roots.
Madam Boakye-Boateng who was addressing a meeting with the women in the party on Wednesday, argued that an early congress would also allow the candidate ample time to campaign.
She said current agitations by members of the party against decisions by the CPP Chairperson, Madam Samia Nkrumah, General Secretary, Mr Ivor Greenstreet and some minority members for the postponement of the congress to next year is illegal.
She said it is important that the National leadership uphold the provisions of the party’s constitution as the ultimate determiner of its activities to prevent further confusion and delays.
The National Women’s Organiser had convened the meeting to outline her short, medium and long terms plans for the women in the party and to urged them to work hard towards the attainment of the ultimate of the CPP in winning Election 2012.
She said as a National Women’s Organiser she intends to work basically at the constituency level to enhance organisation and ensure that more women are mobilised to vote for the party.
Madam Boakye-Boateng said she intends to adopt innovative and pragmatic policies and programmes to source for the needed resources, including money and other logistical requirements, to help the CPP prosecute an effective, efficient and visible campaign for the Election 2012. GNA
