The two Nkrumahist parties have been in talks for years over the issue but that has since not yielded positive results.
Months ago, the CPP announced that it had given up all hope of entering into an alliance with the PNC.
“It is not unrealistic that we will seek to work together in one shape or another. We do not want to form an impression that if we don’t do this, then we are not ready for power," Mr. Akomfrah said, and dismissed assertions that they have little time to make this happen.
The General Secretary of the People’s National Convention, has meanwhile welcomed the fresh call by the CPP.
“It is not something new. It is not something we are surprised about. But we believe that it is achievable. My hope is that this will not take more than a month to achieve. We just need to hasten the process," Atik Mohammed said.
