The Campaign Team of Alan Kyerematen has denied reports that the former Trade and Industry Minister is in talks to partner CPP’s Ivor Kobina Greenstreet for the 2024 general election. The Ghanaian Times newspaper and other news portals have reported that Mr Kyere­maten initiated talks with the two-time CPP flagbearer for a possible alliance. According to the paper, its undisclosed sources
said he initially tossed the idea of running as an Independent Candidate but later abandoned the idea, realising that it would be difficult to run a success­ful independent campaign in 2024.

Mr Kyerematen is said to have held talks with the leadership of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) and the Convention People’s Party, political parties that already have existing structures to make the campaign easier.

However when GBC News got in touch with Mr. Kyeremanten’s team, they vehemently denied the report and blamed some anti Alan elements within the government of planting the story in the media to court disaffection for the former Minister.

Mr Kyerematen withdrew from the NPP Presidential race after finishing in third position in the super delegates conference held on August 26. He garnered 95 votes, behind Dr Bawumia who had 629 votes and Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, who secured 132 votes. Mr Kyerematen cited intimida­tion and an unfair playing field as reasons for his withdrawal.
Meanwhile, some of his sup­porters have joined Vice President Bawumia’s campaign.
