The major opposition party, the National Democratic Congres and the ruling New Patriotic Party will be battling out their chances to occupy seats in parliament during the December 7 elections
Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
It is not clear how many exact seats each of them will occupy.
However, YEN.com.gh has tactfully compiled a list of parliamentary seats that already belong to the opposition National Democratic Congress
1. Nadowli West Constituency
The Nadowli West Constituency in the Upper West Region of Ghana has been a strong seat for the NDC for a long time.
Alban Bagbin, the incumbent MP for the constituency, stood on the ticket of the NDC and successfully won in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th parliaments of the 4th Republic of Ghana.
The trend will likely not end soon for the party although Bagbin himself will no more contest.
2. Tamale South Constituency
The Tamale South Constituency has also been for the NDC for many ages with Haruna Iddrisu, the current MP of the constituency, reigning since 2004 when the region was first created.
After 16 years of success, it can be said that nothing is yet strong enough to take the seat from the NDC in the area.
3. Ningo-Prampram Constituency
Since 1992, the Ningo-Prampram Constituency has been taken hostage by the National Democratic Congress.
The current member of parliament, Sam Nartey George, took over in 2016 from Enoch Teye Mensah who had been on the seat since 1996.
The constituency is a strong NDC zone and nobody can change that as yet.
4. Anlo Constituency
The Anlo Constituency is one that has seen a lot of changes in political parties since it was created.
Prior to 1992, the National Alliance of Liberals, Convention People's Party and United National Convention had exchanged the baton.
In 1992, NDC took over but was stopped by an independent candidate in 2000.
However, since 2004, NDC's Clement Krofi Humado has not given the chance to any other person to take the seat.
All things being equal, the trend will continue.
5. Ketu South
The Ketu South Constituency is another stronghold of the NDC that is known popularly as their 'world bank'.
NDC has successfully retained the seat since 1992.
The current MP, Fiifi Fiavi Kwetey, has been reigning since 2012.
It takes no prophet to know 2020 will also be for the opposition party.
6. Sefwi-Akontombra Constituency
For the past 16 years, the National Democratic Congress has solidly kept the parliamentary seat under the honourable MP Herod Cobbina.
2020 will likely not take a different turn.
7. Ho Central Constituency
Another stronghold the NDC has always prided itself on is the Ho Central Constituency.
The seat has been occupied by the opposition party since 1992 and from 2012, Hon Benjamin Komla Kpodo has been the member of parliament.
Ceteris Paribus, the NDC will continue the same trend.
