The Progressive People’s Party (PPP) has been selected to participate in a Best Practice Study Session in Pre-Election Campaign Organisation being hosted by the UK Liberal Democrats from 13th – 21st March 2015 in Liverpool and London. The Liberal Democrats (Lib Dems) were formed in 1988 by a merger of the Liberal Party and the Social Democratic Party.
The quintessence of the Programme is for the PPP representatives to shadow Liberal Democrat campaigners and political leaders in battleground constituencies and also attend the party’s pre-election conference in Liverpool where they will participate in a tailor-made training programme on campaigning.
12 delegates from around the world have been selected to participate in the week long session. After reviewing the profiles of over 300 politicians all over the world, 81 were short-listed out of which, Mr. Paa Kow Ackon of the Progressive People’s Party scored the highest and was unanimously selected by the approving board as first choice.
The PPP National Youth Coordinator, Mr Divine Nkrumah has also been selected after a similar competitive process to participate in Lib Dems youth South Africa project.
The Lib Dems have been very impressive with the talents within the PPP and the consistency in the fight against Corruption, implementation of the Free Compulsory Basic Education and Job Creation.
