Majority leader in parliament, Alban Bagbin, predicts the National Democratic Congress (NDC) will garner 57% of votes in the December elections.
In an address to thousands of party supporters during the launch of the NDC manifesto at Sunyani, Alban Bagbin boasted that "with a galaxy of such messengers, our parliamentary candidates, led by an accomplished Presidential candidate, John Mahama; the NDC will win the elections by a large margin".
Alban Bagbin also took his turn to assure supporters that the NDC will retain its majority in parliament by winning in excess of 184 seats in the parliamentary election.
With the NDC’s ‘Green Book’ effectively outlining the key policies and projects, the manifesto launch seeks to explain in details John Mahama’s for the next four years, and provide details of the key interventions he will be implementing in his second term, should he win the polls.
The launch of the party manifesto follows scuffles between the opposition NPP and incumbent NDC over the original owner of the manifesto. Meanwhile, President Mahama has publicly admitted that he personally wrote part of the manifesto.
