The Economic Intelligence Unit (EIU) – a US based research institute – is predicting that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) will be victorious in the 2024 general elections.
According to the research unit, the main reason for NDC’s victory will be that President Akufo-Addo should have completed his 8-year-tenure hence the normal trend of power going to the next main opposition political party.
Even though John Dramani Mahama is touted as the possible candidate for the NDC in 2024, the EIU in its report indicates that opposition party may go in for a new leader. “The next parliamentary and presidential elections are due in 2024.
Under the constitutionally mandated term limits, Mr. Akufo-Addo cannot run for a third term. Mr. Mahama is reportedly considering whether to run again, but we expect the NDC to seek to revitalize its prospects with a fresh candidate.”
