The People?s National Convention (PNC) and the Convention People?s Party (CPP) have kick-started negotiations aimed at establishing a formidable Nkrumahist party to contest the 2016 election.

In this connection, the two parties are in frantic talks to iron out any differences towards achieving unification.

The Chairman of the PNC,nAlhaji Ahmed Ramadan, who disclosed this to the Daily Graphic, said showing a goodwill gesture, the PNC sent a high-powered delegation to support CPP?s bid to win the Kumbungu by-election last week.

?Thankfully we won that election and we are grateful to the people of Kumbungu,?? he stressed.

PNC and CPP, since the inception of the Fourth Republic, have engaged in series of talks aimed at unifying the two parties.

Indeed the unity talks almost became a reality in 2008 elections but fizzled out at the last minute due to disagreements and petty differences

The PNC chairman, however, said the doors of unity would not be shut to the Progressive People?s Party (PPP), another Nkrumahist party and that genuine attempts would be made to bring them on board if it became imperative.

He further said that the door was still opened for other Nkrumahist parties such as the Great Consolidated Popular Party (GCPP), Democratic People?s Party (DPP), among others, to join the unity talks.

The whole idea is to come together as one political force, win elections and finish the uncompleted development agenda of Dr Kwame Nkrumah.

Alhaji Ramadan assured Ghanaians, especially sympathisers and supporters of the Nkrumahist tradition and all those who disagreed with the way things were moving in the country that the unity talks were going to be snappy to ensure that every one came on board to form one formidable Nkrumahist party.

He said the PNC had already set May 25 to convene a National Standing Committee meeting, the agenda of which would be the reorganisation of the party, unity talks and other issues brought foward by the various regional executives of the PNC.
