The Convention People Party (CPP) will not contest all the 275 parliamentary seat in the 2020 elections, acting Chairperson, Hajia Hamdatu Ibrahim has said.

She has bemoaned the party's strength in the 2020 election, calling for a more strategic approach to stay in contest.

She says the CPP does not have enough resources for the task but believes a good strategy can help the party to make a mark next year.

“We will cut our coat according to the available resources to be able to match the NPP and NDC come 2020,” she said.

She has therefore encouraged party members to patronize pro-poor policies of the New Patriotic Party.

According to her, the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO), Masloc loans and other pro-poor policies of the NPP are being financed with the country’s resources and that CPP members are Ghanaians and have the right to benefit from the policies as well.

“Are we going to say we are CPP so we won’t go and access these facilities?,” she quizzed.

The CPP was banned after the overthrow of the Kwame Nkrumah in 1966.

It has struggled to make any serious impact ever since it returns to into Ghana's political contests in the year 2000.
