A Senior Lecturer at the Political Science Department of the University of Ghana, Dr. Asah Asante has said the New Patriotic Party (NPP) will lose some seat in the Ashanti Region coming December 7, 2020.
According to him, it will be difficult for the NPP to some three which is in favor of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Speaking in an interview Daily News Ghana monitored, Dr. Asah said the NPP target of all the 47 seats in the region will hit the rock.
“It will be difficult for the NPP to win all seats but the NDC is also losing grounds,” Dr. Asante said.
He added that “Research has shown that the NPP has doubled their votes. The highest the NDC can go in Ashanti Region is usually 770,000 votes,” he stated.
According to the NPP, it is targeting 90 percent of the votes cast in the region and is putting all its resources together to snatch all the seats.
In the 2016 elections, the NPP won over 76 percent of the votes cast in the region whiles the NDC on the other hand targeted one million votes but fell short of that.
