Mr. Boakye Yiadom, a political analyst and lecturer, has expressed his reaction to the news that Alan Kyerematen is reportedly seeking to partner Ivor Greenstreet in the 2024 presidential election.
The partnership was deemed troubling and politically disturbing by him.
He stated that after withdrawing from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) primary, the former trade and industry minister has four choices.
He expressed his potential choices, including forming a new party, contesting as an independent candidate, partnering with another candidate, or withdrawing from the contest altogether.
The lecturer stated on Nyankonton Mu Nsem on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm that the collaboration may not survive since “the Alan we know is a UP tradition, and that tradition was birthed out of the UGCC.” These two political traditions disagree on policy and ideology. Alan should consider working with the CPP in an election. But it will be tough to convince his [Alan] supporters to renounce their UP tradition and join the CPP.
The CPP is no longer a viable party. The NDC has had an impact on the CPP today. Several of its members have joined the NDC. Alan will face a difficult challenge convincing his supporters to join him in the CPP,” he opined.
