Fresh candidate will help NDC win 2024 polls – EIU projects

The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) has projected that the National Democratic Congress will have a better chance of winning the 2024 polls if they are led by a new candidate.

The EIU however notes that it aware former President John Mahama who led the NDC unsuccessfully in the 2016 and 2020 is aiming to run again.

“The next parliamentary and presidential elections are due in 2024. Under constitutionally mandated term limits, the incumbent president, Mr. Akufo-Addo, cannot run for a third term. The former president is reportedly considering running again, but we expect the opposition NDC to try to revitalise its prospects with a fresh candidate,” the latest report of the EIU said.

It added: “Our baseline forecast is that ongoing public dissatisfaction with the slow pace of improvements in governance—such as infrastructure development, job creation and easing of corruption—will trigger anti-incumbency factors and push the electorate to seek a change. The NDC therefore stands a reasonable chance of winning the 2024 elections”.
