The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) has once again predicted who the winner of Ghana’s December polls will be.
According to the EIU’s July report which forecasts closed in June, majority of Ghanaians still will vote for President Nana Akufo-Addo for a second term in the presidential elections.
The report further noted that Ghanaians still do not trust the NDC flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama.
The report noted that many Ghanaians continue to associate the former president and the manner in which he handled the economy.
The report also revealed that regardless of the negative economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, it will be difficult for the NDC and Mahama to portray itself as the better custodian of Ghana’s economy.
“We [EIU] expect Mr. Akufo-Addo and the NPP to secure re-election,” the report added.
The report states categorically that ahead of the 2020 election, the NPP has focused on industrialization and infrastructure development, as well as outlining ambitious growth plans for agriculture to boost rural incomes, a move they say will enure to the governing party's advantage.
The EIU, however, noted that if the NDC can present a coherent challenge and hold the NPP administration to account on its unfulfilled campaign promises—such as faster progress on infrastructure development—the 2020 elections could be closely contested.
YEN.com.gh also earlier reported that more than half of Ghanaians surveyed in the Ghana Election Poll do not think President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has fulfilled his promises well enough to deserve re-election as president of Ghana in the December 2020 presidential election, a Ghanaweb poll has suggested.
Meanwhile, 32% of Ghanaians who took part in the poll are of the view that the president has fulfilled his promises in the past four years and deserves to be re-elected.
