I’ll Appoint Ministers From All Parties – Alan Kyerematen

Source The Ghana Report

A presidential hopeful of the Movement for Change, Alan Kyerematen, has pledged to appoint ministers from all walks of life regardless of their party colours.

The former trade minister, who just resigned from the New Patriotic Party (NPP), said the only requirement for consideration is a demonstrable and proven track record of performance in their field of specialization.

Mr Kyerematen, therefore, urged Ghanaians to help change the political status quo by moving beyond the duopoly of the two main political parties in Ghana: the NPP and NDC.

According to him, leading a government of national unity will bring harmony to the legislature and facilitate the approval and execution of government programmes and projects.

He added that giving him the nod would also break divisive partisanship in governance and end the “winner takes all” political syndrome.

He said he would “promote the establishment of a government of national unity, which will include people from all walks of life, irrespective of their political, religious, and ethnic affiliations: rich or poor, able-bodied or physically challenged, young or old, women and men”.

“This will allow for effective and inclusive participatory governance. The Movement will lead to the formation of a government of the people, by the people, and for the people,” he added.

It will be recalled that Mr. Kyerematen withdrew from the NPP race, citing electoral irregularities, unfair treatment, and bias during the NPP super delegates’ conference.

In his withdrawal statement, the former Trade and Industry Minister expressed concerns that these issues might persist in the final November 4 primary if he remained in the race.

He promised to clarify his political role in the country after consulting with his family, well-wishers, stakeholders, and interest groups.

While accepting his withdrawal, the NPP disagreed with Kyerematen’s claims that the election had been skewed in favour of any candidate.

The party, however, acknowledged ongoing investigations into incidents that occurred during the super delegates’ conference, some of which were referenced by Mr Kyerematen.

Alan Kyerematen’s performance in the initial selection process, which aimed to choose five candidates for the main election in November, surprised many.

He was considered a primary contender against Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia but placed third after Assin Central MP Kennedy Agyapong, securing 95 votes, equivalent to 10.82% of the total votes cast.
