This evening ncumbent president, John Dramani Mahama, will have his chance to speak to the Ghanaian public on the Ghana Broadcasting Corporations' (GBC) Evening Encounter, an initial interaction in preparation for the state broadcaster's national debate.
This comes after the traditional organizers of the presidential debates - The IEA - failure to hold presidential debates due to an inability to bring all party presidential candidates to a common platform.
GTV channel manager, Ebenezer Ampaabeng, stated that the encounter will initiate dialogue between presidential candidates and representatives of institutions such as the Association of Ghana Industries and trade unions.
"Our conviction is that those who seek to govern us should on their way to the top provide the opportunity for people to interact with them," said Mr. Ampaabeng.
According to Mr. Ampaapeng, the president will give an initial policy address of 30 minutes, after which an opportunity to ask questions will be given for in-studio guests, who will be present strictly by invitations.
An opportunity for questions by the general public will also be afforded but via "the power of technology", one could only assume this means via social media and calling in.
