EIU predicts defeat for NPP in 2024 elections
NDC tipped to win 2024 polls
NPP rejects EIU report
The interpretation of an aspect of the recent Economic Intelligence Unit (EIU) report over the possibility of the National Democratic Congress winning the 2024 election became the point of a debate between Kwame Sefa Kayi, Nana Akomea and Kwesi Pratt on Peace FM Kokrokoo program.
In the report, the EIU observed that the NDC was going to win the polls but would have to do that with a new man in the saddle.
“The next parliamentary and presidential elections are due in 2024. Under constitutionally mandated term limits, the incumbent president, Mr. Akufo-Addo, cannot run for a third term. The former president, John Mahama, is reportedly considering running again, but we expect the opposition NDC to try to revitalise its prospects with a fresh candidate,” the EIU said.
Kwame Sefa Kayi and Nana Akomea of the New Patriotic Party understood it to mean that the only way the NDC was going to win the polls was by ditching Mahama for a new candidate.
Nana Akomea said, “they (EIU) said if elections were held today, NDC would win but their chances of winning would be better without John Mahama. This is what I got from their report. According to them, John Mahama is not the best candidate for the NDC.
Pratt interjected “That’s not what the report said.”
Nana Akomea then went on to repeat and explain what he said earlier.
