“We Expect NDC To Win 2024 Elections” With A New Candidate – Economist Intelligence Unit Predicts

The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) has predicted a win for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the 2024 presidential and parliamentary elections, but with a new candidate.

According to the global political and economics watchers, after two terms of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government, the NDC stands a better chance to win the 2024 presidential election and gain “a small majority” in Parliament.

The EIU, however, said the NDC must field a new presidential candidate because the party’s current candidate, John Mahama, is not a favourite to secure a win for the party.
