Alan announces political future today

Alan Kyerematen

Former Trade Minister, Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen, whose bid for the flagbearer position within the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) and fell short, is poised to reveal his political trajectory today, Monday, 25 September 2023, at a scheduled press conference.

Mr Kyerematen, a participant in the initial round of the NPP's flagbearer selection, aimed to streamline the candidate pool from 10 to five, despite placing third, ultimately withdrew from the primary race, alleging bias on the part of the party's leadership in favour of a specific candidate.

There are widespread speculations that Mr Kyerematen may sever ties with the party and pursue the presidency as an independent candidate. However, the veil of uncertainty will be lifted later today when he discloses his future intentions.

The possibility remains that he may choose to continue his journey within the party, throwing his support behind one of the remaining four candidates vying for the coveted flagbearer position or pursue his political ambitions solo.
