A research worked carried out by the Political Science Department of the University of Ghana (UG) is projecting that the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) is likely to come out tops in the upcoming presidential election this December 7.
The University’s Political Science Department said that it conducted the survey in about 100 constituencies which were purposively selected across all 16 regions of the country, and with a total of 11,949 respondents out of a targeted 12,000 in a random sampling manner.
According to the survey documents, 51.7% of respondents stated that they intend to caste their votes for the incumbent President, Nana Akufo-Addo whiles a distant 40.4% stated their intentions to vote for the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama, who doubles as the immediate former President.
Lead researcher for the project, Kaakyire Duku Frempong, disclosed that the survey was conducted between the 12th and 22nd of November this year.
Whiles speaking to the press, Mr. Frempong explained that 80.9% of respondents said their decision on who to vote for was final.
He added also that, of the total respondents, 53.5% were of the view that the NPP-led government had adequately delivered on its promises made in reference to its 2016 manifesto on which they were voted into power.
The survey sees, the Ghana Union Movement (GUM) coming third, scoring a meagre 1.3% in expected vote from respondents.
The survey extrapolates that only 3.7% of the Ghanaian voter population remains undecided on their final choice for President in the upcoming election in December.
