The National Congress to elect the presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) may be months away but a presidential hopeful, Mr Isaac Osei, who is the MP for Subin, has already predicted that he will emerge the presidential candidate of the party for the 2012 elections.

I know what I am doing and I believe that I will sail through, he said in an interview in Kumasi. The NPP plans to hold its national delegates congress before the end of 2010 to enable it prepare adequately for the next parliamentary and presidential elections.

Mr Osei said he had been going round talking to the people who matter in such electoral matters and the message was being well received. He refused to accept suggestions that he could be a compromise candidate against the backdrop of the unhealthy rivalry between the Mr Alan Kyerematen and Nana Akufo-Addo camps.

Calling somebody a compromise candidate could mean the person not having the credentials to lead the party. But my records in politics, and in the civil and public services put me high up there, he stressed.

That in no way is to belittle the other potential candidates, he said, adding that both Nana Akufo-Addo and Mr Kyerematen were strong politicians. Mr Osei said in politics it was good to compare records but that per se could not win elections. A number of things go into winning an election and that is what I am seriously working on, he added.
