The CPP National Campaign moves into high gear in July following a productive all-day meeting on Saturday, June 28th to review the results from the second quarter. Members of the CPP Central Committee, National Campaign Team and Presidential Campaign Team led by the Chairman of the Party, Mr. Ladi Nylander and the Flagbearer, Dr. Nduom participated in the review session.

The CPP plans to get its legendary organization magic firmly in place by the middle of September in preparation for a massive national campaign rally to be held on Sunday, September 21st which is the Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah's birth date.

In this regard, July has been set aside as the national membership drive month. The Flagbearer, Dr. Nduom set the agenda rolling on July 1st by launching the New Voters Campaign at the Accra Polytechnic. The Campaign aims to register thousands of new voters (18 – 22 years of age), disillusioned voters and others. On July 1st about 1000 young men and women were registered and issued with official CPP membership cards. Dr. Nduom will promote this New Voters Campaign throughout the country. The CPP is targeting new voters, disillusioned voters and floating voters to propel it to win more than 35% of the presidential votes to be in the runoff and win 100 parliamentary seats.

The Presidential Campaign will be in the Central Region for programs in Elmina, Komenda and Kissi on Saturday July 5th and Ajumako on Sunday July 6th. On Monday, Dr. Nduom's National Unity Tour to bring CPP faithful together will be in Kumasi on Monday July 7th where all regional, constituency executives and parliamentary aspirants in the Ashanti Region will meet him. A press conference will be held after the meeting which is to take place at 9.00 am at the GNAT Hall in Kumasi.

The Team will return to the Central Region on Tuesday, July 8th for stops in Gomua East and Mfantseman East constituencies. On Wednesday evening July 9th, Dr. Nduom will visit homeless young people including kayayei at the center of Accra.

On Friday, July 11th, Dr. Nduom will participate in the Youth Explosion program at the Trade Fair Site. Dr. Nduom will move to the Tain and Yeji constituencies in Brong Ahafo on July 12th and then move to the three northern regions until the 14th of July.

The Presidential Team will be in the Eastern Region (Afram Plains constituencies) on the 16th and 17th. The Team will be in the Volta Region where durbars are expected to be held in Mafi Kumasi and Sogakope on the 20th and Juapong on the 21st.

The CPP is expected to launch its Manifesto on July 22nd. For the rest of the month, the campaign will focus on completing the membership drive throughout the country. Throughout the July tour, "Edwumawura", "Yeresesamu" and "Change You Can Feel in Your Pocket" will be explained and popularised. Dr. Nduom will also introduce CPP Parliamentary Candidates wherever he goes.
