National Chairman of the People’s National Convention (PNC), Bernard Anbataayela Mornah, has disclosed that his party has extended an invitation to other parties for a merger to win the 2016 general elections.

Speaking at a press conference held at the party’s headquarters in Accra on Tuesday, the chairman explained that the decision to opt for a merger was approved at the party’s recent congress held at Wa in the Upper West region.

He mentioned that the party was waiting for the response from its sister parties, which he believes would be positive, adding that in case of a negative feedback, the party would go ahead with its campaign.

“As a party, the PNC is currently involved in restructuring of the entire organizational set up of the party and undertaking critical reforms, human and institutional capacity enhancement through the needed training and skills development, as well as complete moral and innovative shift to protect the ordinary Ghanaian from ongoing misery and despondency,” he added.

He said the goals the party set for itself in the 2015 Congress had been achieved which empowered the current executive to carry out extensive rebranding of the party.

The goals, the chairman said, include proposal for constitutional amendments, election of officers, consideration for a merge and report of the state of the party.

The chairman also mentioned that the party was in the process of consoling those lost in the elections to promote unity.

Mr. Mornah stressed that though the party has some internal challenges, it stood the chance of winning the 2016 elections in view of what he described as animosity, violence, indiscipline in the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) and New Patriotic Party (NPP).
