-Ivor Greenstreet of the Convention People's Party (CPP) has bemoaned the monopoly of Ghanaian politics between the NPP and NDC
- The CPP flagbearer has cautioned Ghanaians against such a culture of voting stating that both parties have failed to deliver on their promises
Flagbearer of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Ivor Greenstreet has lamented over what he describes as illogical the consistent voting for the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) and incumbent National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Ivor Greenstreet has warned that the gap between the poor and the rich will continue to widen if Ghanaians fail to recognize the need to vote a third-force political party come the November 7 elections arguing that the incumbent National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), have performed terribly since 1992.

“You should all logically draw the conclusion that those who happen to have ruled you since 1992 have all been abysmal failures; and therefore if they have been abysmal failures, there is no point repeating them because nobody repeats failures. There’s absolutely no logic in why NDC should be returned to power and definitely no logical reason why you would want to bring back the failed NPP. So neither of these two parties should represent any iota of determination when you make your logical mental decision making process unless you want to continue ensuring that there is this widening gap between the rich and the poor,” he argued.
Ghana's political terrain has been documented to be dominated by the two major political parties being the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the incumbent National Democratic Congress (NDC). Even as the November 7 elections will see several political parties selling their ideas to woo voters, it still remains clear that their political dominance is not dominance enough as past elections show all such parties record humiliating percentage of votes.
