With just 47 days left for Ghanaians to go to the polls to elect a President and Members of Parliament, Political parties in the Country especially the two major parties, the NDC and the NPP are crisscrossing the Country to win the hearts of Ghanaians.
Since 1992, the Greater Accra Region and the Central Region always decide the winner in every elections in Ghana.
One thing about these two swing Regions is that, the voting pattern in these Regions always keeps changing as they don’t stick to one particular party.
Interestingly, any party that is able to win these two Regions always win the National elections.
Below are the statistics on the performance of the two parties in both Presidential and parliamentary elections from 1992.
Ahead of the December General Elections, both the NDC and the NPP are claiming for glory in these two swing Regions.
On TV’s Elections 360 programme this morning, renowned pollster and editor of the Daily Dispatch News Paper, Mr. Ben Ephson stated that, voters in the Central Region are likely to vote for the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP) in the December General Elections.
Explaining his reasons, Mr. Ephson said that, the establishment of the Ekumfi juice factory in the Central Region by NPP is likely to influence the voters in the Region.
He also stated that, the mere fact that, the Vice presidential candidate of the NDC, Prof. Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang is from the Region does not guarantee a victory for the NDC in the Region.
He cited example of how voters in the Central Region voted against late President Mills in the year 2000 and 2004 despite him coming from the Region and also against Mr. Emissah Arthur who was NDC running mate in the 2016 elections.
The renowned pollster indicated that, voters in the Central Region does not vote based on tribal or Regional basis.
