According Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), the New Patriotic Party (NPP) will be re-elected in the 2020 Ghana election.
A portion of the comment by the EIU says, “expect Mr. Akufo-Addo and the NPP to secure re-election in 2020”.
The report by the Economist Intelligence Unit, biggest opposition party, National Democratic Congress (NDC) will find it difficult to sell itself during their campaign.
The statement sighted by Browngh.com emanating from the EIU says,“Nana Akufo-Addo, the president, and his NPP will see the country’s economic situation generally improve during the remainder of their terms of office.
Predicting the winner for the 2020 elections, the EIU said,“The 2016 legislative election was won by the NPP; and the campaign was dominated by the faltering economy, which many Ghanaians still associate with Mr Mahama.”
It added“The Economist Intelligence Unit believes that it will be difficult for the NDC under Mr Mahama to portray itself as the better custodian of Ghana’s economy, especially as the country’s growth outlook is fairly strong.”
The EIU also said,“expect Mr. Akufo-Addo and the NPP to secure re-election in 2020.”
In the 2016 elections, NPP won by a landslide margin, polling 53% of the total votes cast while the NDC managed 44.4%.
