We are the New Patriotic Party (NPP), a liberal democratic political party which was registered on 28 July 1992. A truly popular national organisation, our membership and support spans the length and breadth of Ghana with offices and local parties in each of the 230 constituencies across the country.
The NPP’s tradition of advocating and championing multi-party democracy in Ghana dates back to the United Gold Coast Convention (UGCC) founded in 1947 with the primary aim of fighting for political independence from the British colonial administration.
The UGCC itself was led by our forebears, Dr J.B. Danquah, Alfred “Paa” Grant, R.S. Blay, R.A. Awoona-Williams, E.O. Obetsebi-Lamptey, Edward Akufo-Addo, J.W. De Graft Johnson, William E. Ofori-Atta and others. No wonder, therefore, that the NPP can claim direct ancestral links to the oldest democratic traditions of Ghanaian politics.
