This evening, three presidential candidates will be taking part in the Institute of Economic Affairs's presidential debate, but the absence of major players like the NDC and NPP presidential candidates may make for a pretty uneventful debate session.

It seems as thought this year the IEA's hopes for holding a full on debate - with every party's presidential candidate - have completely been dashed, to the point that the institute is willing to take what it'll get... and take it they have. The NPP's presidential candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo, and the NDC's incumbent president, John Dramani Mahama, will not be taking part.

Tonight, the IEA will be holding it's first presidential debate for this years presidential election hopefuls but, like we mentioned earlier, it won't be much to write home about. with the relationship between the IEA and the ruling NDC party still not completely mended, and the NPP's presidential candidate opting to 'take his message to the people' it seems like all major players in the political arena have chosen to desert the IEA traditional debate platform.

This being said, it will be an interesting event considering the fact that this will be a chance to listen to the four - relatively - minor candidates' plans, ideas, and promises without the usual antagonistic feuds between the two major party candidates.
