President John Mahama will debate Nana Akufo-Addo in a two-man presidential debate ahead of the November 7 polls.
The debate will be organized by the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA). According to the IEA the move will give voters the opportunity to assess and interrogate the brain power of their favourite candidate.
Speaking at the launch of the IEA’s Presidential Debates and Evening Encounters, the media and senior research fellow at the Institute of Economic Affairs, Dr. Michael Ofori-Mensah said: “there are two new initiatives under discussion for 2016 elections. First the IEA is exploring the possibility of holding a debate for the two main front-runners in the presidential election.
"The second is that we are at an advanced stage about holding a separate debate for political parties without representation in parliament," he added.
He also revealed that the Evening Encounters will focus on the individual candidates and the electorate to help them make an informed choice during the election.
The Presidential Debates will take off in the second week of September and end in the third week of October.
