According to him, the exclusionary politics practiced by the two main political parties, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is largely responsible for the stunted development of the country.

Alan Kyerematen says his solution to the problem is the introduction of his government of national unity, which would invite persons from all walks of life to play key roles in fashioning an inclusive administration that will ensure uninterrupted continuity in state-led projects, among other things.

Alliance for Revolutionary Change

His commitment to a government of national unity culminated in creating the Alliance for Revolutionary Change.

The main agenda of the Alliance is to usurp the NPP-NDC duopoly and offer Ghanaians a viable alternative.

The Alliance is made up of several political parties and pressure groups including the Movement for Change (M4C), the Ghana Green Party (GGP), the National Interest Movement (NIM), the Third Force Movement, the Ghana First Coalition (GFC), the Non-Alliance Voters Association of Ghana (NAVAG), the Union Movement (UM), the Ghana National Party (GNP), and the Crusaders Against Corruption, among others.
