The Liberia Party of Ghana (LPG) has called for change of the political dynamics of the country; “Elections 2020 must set the character for emergence of a dynamic third force to takeover the governance of this nation for rapid development.

“The electorates must use the 2020 general elections to liberate Ghana from the political dominion of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and National Democratic Congress (NDC) who have ruled this country since 1993,” Mr Kofi Akpaloo, LPG Leader and Founder told the Ghana News Agency in an interview.

Mr Akpaloo blamed the NPP and NDC for the challenges the nation was experiencing- depreciation of the local currency, schools under trees, disorganized educational system, carnage on our roads and break down of discipline.

The LPG leader explained that as a first step towards electoral transformation, the “LPG will hold its National Delegates Congress on May 25 at Ho in the Volta Region to coincide with the African Union Day, to begin the electoral renaissance of Ghana.

“After many years of democratic stability, Ghana should have been developed beyond our current state all due to the NPP and NDC factor who only rule for political expediency.

“After winning power, both NPP and NDC uses two years to reverse all that their predecessors have achieved, and then uses the next two years to set their own structures and campaign for the next elections”.

Mr Akpaloo said the LPG Congress which would be attended by over 1,00 delegates would among other things elect the party’s Election 2020 Flagbearer.

He said LPG is setting up the electoral parameter to ignite total overhauling of the country’s electoral structures to ensure that, ‘we liberate Ghana from the two-party dominance’.

“I have vigilantly diagnosed the development haemorrhage of the country under the leadership of the two parties – NPP and NDC which has seen the nation’s development either retrogressing or at a standstill, our economic fortunes are dwindling coupled with high cost of living, and I’m convinced that Ghana urgently needs electoral overhauling,” Mr Akpaloo said.

Mr Akpaloo, who is also the representative of the minority parties without representation in Parliament on the ROPAA Consultative Committee, said collectively, Ghanaians need to join forces for re-examination, to dismantle, and make extensive renovations or revisions in order to repair the Ghanaian economic structures.

The LPG leader said the winner takes all political system has not help the country, “LPG will adopt a progressive all-inclusive governance system, we must use all human resources irrespective of one’s political affiliation, governance is about the people not about the party”.

He said LPG leadership believes in; “all hands-on deck approach which will be adopted to utilise the knowledge, resources and manpower of Ghanaian….in view of this, a special Political Parties dialogue platform will be created to reduce electoral animosity”.

Mr Akpaloo also urged LPG supporters to join forces in building a party and democratic system of administration under which all members “will be able to contribute to the welfare, peace and prosperity of our great party.

“I will harness to the full the human and financial resources of the party and ensure development at all levels without discrimination”.

He said LPG is mobilizing to strengthen the party structures, and empower all party functionaries and organs to be ready for election 2020 and beyond.
