EIU predicts victory for Akufo-Addo tomorrow

The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) has reiterated that its nationwide polling has it that Nana Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) will win the presidential elections tomorrow.

It also expects the NPP to win the parliamentary elections.

The EIU, which first made the predictions in October, says it is confident in its findings.

EIU, the research and analysis division of The Economist Group, in its November country report said it expects a transition of power from the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to the NPP after the December 2016 elections, although there is a possibility of disputed results.

“Even assuming disputed results, Ghana's democratic and judicial systems are strong enough to prevent any systematic threat to the country's stability. Tensions will therefore ebb after the election period is concluded," the report said.

An update sent by EIU to investors on November 28, further maintained that: “Our forecast of a close election result (and some associated unrest) remains in place. We also continue to predict an NPP victory as being the most likely outcome.”

In 2012, the EIU predicted that President John Mahama was “arguably the slight favorite” to win the election.
