The political parties, represented by their chairpersons and general secretaries, were the New Patriotic Party (NPP), National Democratic Congress (NDC), Progressive Peoples’ Party (PPP), Convention People’s Party (CPP), People’s National Convention (PNC) and the National Democratic Party (NDP).
The rest were Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG), United People’s Party (UPP), All People’s Congress (APC), Great Consolidated Popular Party (GCPP), United Front Party (UFP) and the Democratic People’s Party (DPP).
The meeting, which was the first between a sitting president on one hand and leaders of political parties in recent years, lasted over three hours, and was held in a cordial atmosphere, one of frank exchanges and mutual respect.
Issues discussed included the commemoration of the Silver Jubilee of the 4th Republic, on Sunday, January 7, 2018; the election of metropolitan, municipal and district chief executives and the creation of new regions, among others.
It is the intention of President Akufo-Addo to have such meetings in future, and the representatives of the political parties described this initiative as a laudable one.
