The United Progressive Party (UPP), has fixed July 18, 2015 to organise its first National Delegates Congress in Kumasi on the theme, "New Route to Victory 2016".

The congress will be used to elect a party flag bearer for the 2016 election, and national executive members who will also lead the party for the next four years.

The party, according to its acting General Secretary, Mr Razak Kojo Opoku, had so far successfully organised eight regional congresses.

He said, the Greater Accra and Brong Ahafo regional congresses, would be organised early next week to pave way for the party’s national delegates congress on July 18, 2015.

Around 1,500 delegates are expected to attend the national delegates congress, according to him.

For now, Mr Opoku pointed out that everything was in place for a successful national congress stating “the UPP is ready for its National Delegates Congress.”

The UPP, which is a Social Democratic Party with the core focus on wealth creation through industrialisation, science and technology, received its final certificate of registration from the Electoral Commission on May, 27, 2015.

The party, led by Mr Akwasi Addai Odike, has its slogan as “ UPP: EYE MERE, UPP: YE MERENIE.”

The party was formed upon the vision and leadership of Mr Odike, who is seeking to become the 2016 flagbearer of the party.
On receiving the final certificate, Mr Odike expressed the party’s readiness to abide by the rules and uphold the human rights of the citizens.

Mr Odike also said the party was ready to go all out to take power from the incumbent National Democratic Congress, with “economic empowerment for the people of Ghana” as its focus.

The logo of the party is a clock with blue, black and red colours.
