1st Position Is A Sign From God - Greenstreet

Political parties contesting this year’s Presidential elections on Wednesday, picked positions on the ballot papers.

This occurred at the Electoral Commission (EC) headquarters in Accra, moments after the commission announced which presidential candidates had qualified to be on the ballot paper.

The Convention People's Party (CPP) chose the first position followed by the National Democratic Party (NDP) at second and the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) at third position.

The Progressive People's Party (PPP) and the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) picked fourth (4th) and fifth (5), People's National Convention (PNC) took the  sixth position and the independent candidate Jacob Osei Yeboah (JOY) took the seventh position.

Already most of the political parties have given their own interpretations to their positions on the ballot paper to aid in their campaigning.

John 3:16 is for the ruling NDC and ‘high five’ is for the NPP.

Speaking to the host of Peace FM's morning show 'Kokrokoo', Kwami Sefa Kayi in an interview on Thursday, Ivor Greenstreet, flagbearer of the CPP said theirs is ‘esroho’ (top or first).

According to him, they taking the first position on the ballot paper “is a sign from the Almighty”.
