When it comes to elections and running the affairs of the country, two major political parties come to mind.
The National Democratic Congress(NDC) and the New Patriotic Party(NPP) have been the forerunners of the country's affairs ever since Ghana switched to democratic rule in 1992.
The Progressive People’s Party (PPP) has, however, indicated its readiness to push the December 2020 presidential elections into a second round, popularly known as the runoff.
In a report filed by 3news.com, the newly-elected National Chairman of the party, Nana Ofori Owusu, said the PPP would put in a lot of work hard to get more votes than it did in the 2016 presidential elections.
This, he said will make the PPP a formidable party and the kingmaker this year.
“The Progressive Peoples Party will force this elections into a way that it will move to the second round we are the king makers,” he said.
In 2016, the party under the leadership of Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom had 106,09 votes out of the total votes cast.
The number happened to be the third-highest per the election statistics, with 0.99 percent, according to details from the Electoral Commission of Ghana.
As to how the party would be able to garner more voted to send the country into a runoff, only Ghanaians will decide when they go to the polls on December 7.
In other news, the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo-Addo, has assured Ghanaians of peaceful and free elections on December 7, 2020.
The president of the Republic reiterated his commitment to the Bono Region House of Chiefs on Thursday, September 10, 2020.
He wholeheartedly said his government will ensure absolute peace and stability before, during, and after the 2020 elections.
