Progressive People's Party

The formation of the Progressive People's Party followed a declaration made on 28th december 2011 by Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom for progressive and independent-minded people to rise and cause to be formed an alternative political movement.

The interim leadership of the progressive movement began a nationwide campaign to recruit members to form Interim Regional and Constituency Executives. The team visited all the Ten Regions of Ghana.

in January 2012 the party submitted an application to the Electoral Commission for registration in accordance with the Political Parties Act. It is instructive to note that after the receipt of the official registration forms from the Electoral Commission, we were able to complete and submit the forms to the EC within 48hours.

the Party received its Provisional Certificate on Friday 3rd February 2012. the PPP convened its first National Convention on 25th February 2012 at the Accra Sports Stadium. the final Certificate was received on thursday 15th March, 2012 from the Electoral Commission of Ghana. the national head office building is located at Asylum Down, Accra.

the PPP wants the opportunity to implement an agenda for change when our candidate is made President of the Republic of Ghana. this agenda is built on Four Pillars - Stewardship, Education, Healthcare and Jobs. we will implement the agenda using the spirit of inclusiveness, full participation of women and the youth; and above all a leadership that is incorruptible.

FAQ's

We do not answer this question directly. Instead our answer should be premised on the fact about Ghanaian political history which is replete with upstarts who upstaged many so-called heavyweights in the course of the country’s politics. For instance, who was Nkrumah when he upset the top politicians of the day like J.B. Danquah, William Ofori-Atta (Paa Willie), Akufo-Addo and others during the country’s independence struggle? Again what was the pedigree of Krobo-Edusei, Kojo Botsio, Komla Agble Gbedemah and others when they were picked by Nkrumah to form the political administration of the First Republic? And we believe the success story of the so-called novices is yet to be equaled by any government since independence. Yet again, what was the political strength of Dr. Kwesi Botchwey, Kofi Totobi Quakyi, Tsatsu Tsikata, Paul Victor Obeng etc when they were picked by former President Rawlings to form his PNDC government and later serve in the first administration of the NDC? Despite its bad human rights record, the economic gains chalked by the country under the guide of Dr. Botchwey, then Secretary of Finance and Economic Planning is a major reference point for many of his successors. In the current administration of Prof. Mills there is equally a new breed of young politicians like Haruna Iddrisu, Okudjeto Ablakwa, Dr Omane Boamah, Baba Jamal, James Agyenim Boateng etc whose forte in Ghanaian politics had only been their appearances on radio and television talk-show and current affairs programmes. Today, they are helping President Mills prosecute his Better Ghana Agenda. Whether they have been successful or not is another subject matter that we can unravel successfully if we consider it on non-partisan basis. Our point should be that we will have an excellent blend of known politicians, business men/women, professionals and new ones who will be led by someone with a successful track record of managing people in both the public and private sectors to deliver positive results. In addition, we should point to our commitment to use the best people Ghana has without regard to ethnic, religious and political affiliation to deliver the best results.
We are not in any way suggesting that we abolish the party system. Political parties are a necessity as they help organize the people, bring order to the process of choosing candidates for election and serve as a source of shaping ideas and principles. We are calling on the electorate to vote for the best presidential candidate and not to be swayed by the numerical “strength” of political parties in a previous election to vote for the “wrong candidate”. After all, the country is not going to be administered by the entity called the political party or the general secretary or chairman of a political party, but that individual who is elected by Ghanaians as their president. That is why although political parties might have their manifestoes, presidents often decide to adopt all manner of programmes, based on the realities of the times that are not necessarily part of their manifestoes. That is why President Kufuor, for instance, adopted many models like the Presidential Initiatives, the National Youth Employment programme, National Health Insurance, School Feeding, the Public Transport system etc although his NPP political party claims rightist Conservative/Republican/Individual/Capitalist orientation. We also believe we can have a very strong parliament if the President does not necessarily come from the majority group in Parliament. Can we imagine an executive that does not have majority in parliament? An established democratic country like the United States almost always has a congress or parliament that is not dominated by the President’s party. That is why lobbying and consensus-building have become pillars in the pursuit of good governance in that country. If we are able to achieve that here in Ghana, we will be able to deal with the perception that our parliament has since the inception of the 4th Republic been a rubber stamp to many bad legislation initiated by the executive. As we have always said, the above scenario will enable us have a very strong government because government without majority in Parliament will adopt what has become our principle of inclusiveness, that is, selecting the best available human resource to serve the people of Ghana.
We will ensure that the Constitution as it is now, should be changed to ensure that Parliament becomes a truly independent legislature where MPs perform solely parliamentary duties rather than the current system where MPs are made Ministers of State. In most instances, MPs go to Parliament only to catch the attention of the President to be made Ministers. Such a practice leads to duplication and conflict of interest. We made our position clear to the Constitutional Review Commission on the matter and we hope Ghanaians will join us in this noble crusade. In 1979 Mr. Harry Sawyerr who was an MP for Osu Klottey in Accra on the ticket of William Ofori-Atta’s (Paa Willie) United National Convention (UNC) resigned his MP position when he was made the Minister of Transport by Dr Limann in the Third Republic. Again the same parliament torpedoed the budget of Dr George Benneh, then Minister of Finance although Dr Limann’s party controlled majority in Parliament. This is the kind of Parliament that we wish to see in our current dispensation, not the current arrangement where every law initiated and presented by the executive to Parliament is considered golden and is therefore passed into law even if it is inimical to the progress of the country. Remember STX Korea, the sale of Ghana Telecom, CNTCI, etc.
