Managing Editor of the Insight Newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr who many have accused of him selling his journalism conscience to the ruling NDC has asked why the opposition New Patriotic Party [NPP] has delayed in launching its manifesto–considering the ample time they’ve had in opposition.
Speaking on radio Gold’s political talk show ‘Alhaji & Alhaji’ over the weekend, he said: “When it comes to launching of manifesto, at least three or four parties have launched their manifesto and the NPP cannot launch its manifesto. What was the purpose of their early congress then? How did the NPP use that early congress in other to move ahead of the competing parties? This baffles me.”
“What did early congress do for the NPP? These are serious questions to ask,” he added.
The NPP has stated multiple times that they’ve become wary of the NDC stealing their ideas and as such they are stalling the launch of their manifesto–reasonably intending to do so after the NDC’s manifesto has been launched.
Over the weekend, the NDC launched its manifesto in Sunayni in the Brong Ahafo region–so this should pave way for NPP’s launch.
