NPP Will Win 2008 Elections - Mac Manu 6/8/2007
...Based On Its Good Works
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has stated that it would win the 2008 elections and subsequent elections with an unprecedented margin without resorting to any foul means.

It said Ghanaians would continue to vote for the party because of its unique track record of sound economic management, which had culminated in bringing down inflationary interest rates, stabilised the cedi against other currencies, massive infrastructure development, assistance to the vulnerable and needy through poverty alleviation packages, and respect for human rights among other achievements.

The National Chairman, Mr Peter Mac Manu, who extolled these in an interview with the Daily Graphic, said the NPP had never used foul means, and as a staunch believer of democracy it would always work hard and hope that majority of Ghanaians would vote for it.

He contended that apart from the good works of the party, which the peopletreasure, President Kufuor had through his exemplary leadership earned for the country, massive debt relief, respect and honour which had lifted the image of the Ghan in the international community.

He said Ghanaians, after witnessing and benefiting from the good governance of the NPP would never make the mistake of voting for a political party that would send them to the dark days of violence, intimidation, culture of silence, disrespect for human rights and rule of law, support for individual initiatives, private property ownership and family values.

He said Ghanaians cherished the values the NPP had been practising since 2001, which included giving Ghanaians the opportunity to interact with the chief executive of the country, the President, while he also accounts for his stewardship.

“These are values, which Ghanaians have regarded with great approval and pleasure and will strive to hold on to. They will, therefore, continue to vote for and be with the NPP for a long time’, he added.

On the structures of the party, Mr Mac Manu said the NPP was not an election-winning machine but an old political tradition that believed in building effective and reliable structures at the grass roots throughout the country.

This, he said, had put the party in constant touch with the electorate nationwide, and has enabled the party to know their needs and address them as well as explain government policies to them.

He explained that it was through such informal modes of interacting with the people and other conventional means of soliciting information that the government had been able to implement policies and programmes which had benefited the people.
