Source: rainbowradioonline. com - National Chairman for the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Prof. Edmund Delle has described as shocking the percentage the party garnered in the just ended presidential election. 

According to him, he was personally shocked that the CPP failed to even garner 1 percent after the results were declared. 
Ivor Kobina Greenstreet, the presidential candidate polled 25, 395 votes representing 0.24% of the total votes cast. 

Speaking in an interview with Nyankonton Mu Nsem on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, Prof. Delle said, the party was extremely surprised that after all the assurances given them by chiefs, residents and Ghanaians during their campaign, they failed to make a mark. 

He lamented that never in the history of the CPP has he seen such a poor result in an election. 

''This was a campaign I personally took part in. And we really went from village to village; market to market; house to house and we had overwhelming support for the party and especially for our presidential candidate, but we were very alarmed that the result did not reflect the assurance given us by the people. They made it clear to us; even the traditional leaders assured us of their support…The response was very good but we very alarmed after the results came out. Even all the smaller parties together could not get 2 percent of the votes and in the case of the CPP, we could not even get 1 percent.’’ 

He was even surprised that the disable community assured the CPP of their support but failed to cast their vote for Ivor Greenstreet on election day. 

‘’I am really surprised. The results came as a shock to me,’’ he added. 

He decried the issue of vote buying from the two major parties; financial and logistical constraints on the part of the CPP. 

He said, the party will focus on reorganizing itself and evaluate their poor performance in this year’s election. 

Prof. Edmund Delle underscored the need for the smaller parties to go back to the drawing board and find ways of coming together so Ghanaians will have a third force so the current state of a two party state would be broken.
