CPP remains opposed to People’s Amendment Bill- Pratt

CPP remains opposed to People’s Amendment Bill- Pratt

The Convention People Party (CPP) says it remains opposed to the passage of the Representation of the People’s amendment bill into law despite its absence from the recent press conference organised by the coalition of parties opposed to the bill.

Officials say the party’s position as expressed in statement issued by its party chairman Edmund Delle remains unchanged.

Chairman of the CPP’s publicity Committee, Kwesi Pratt told JOY NEWS that the party’s absence from Tuesday’s press conference was only because it has not considered joining the coalition.

“ Our position is that so far it is impractical, we think that it is likely to lead to disputes on election results. Having a position on the People’s Representation Bill is quite distinct from joining other political parties in a coalition.

For us to go into a coalition there is a process to follow around, we haven’t followed those processes yet.

So our position is very clear. We are opposed to the bill and our National Chairman has actually issued a statement stating in clear terms our position to the bill.

It is the duty of our Members of Parliament (MPs) to follow the decisions of our party,” he said.
