The National Democratic Congress (NDC) must win more than 30 percent of the votes in the Ashanti region to be able to claim power from the incumbent New Patriotic Party (NPP), according to pollster, Ben Ephson.
According to the respected pollster, the Ashanti region remains a huge battleground for the opposition party to conquer.
In an interview monitored by YEN.com.gh on Starr FM in Accra on Wednesday, August 12, Ephson opined that if the NDC is able to get over 30 percent of the votes in the Ashanti region it would have gone a long way in winning the 2020 elections.

Analysing the figures put out by the Electoral Commission on the just ended voters' registration exercise, he stated that the party who wins the Central, Western, and Greater Accra regions can win the 2020 parliamentary and presidential elections.
Ben Ephson said:
“The three Northern regions will be a big battleground because there has been an increase of 155,000 in the three Northern regions plus the new ones and that is hitherto like an NDC stronghold, I’m sure the NPP would want to break into that.”
