The December 7 general elections will determine which of the two parties will occupy the Jubilee House presidential mansion, dominate the legislature and set policy for the next four years.
As with previous elections in the fourth republic, voters’ choices are mostly restricted to the incumbent New Patriotic Party led by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the National Democratic Congress, led by former President John Dramani Mahama, whose tenure was truncated after he failed to win a second term in the 2016 elections.
In the second and last of our polls this season, we sought to assess the views of the electorate on the various issues that previous polls had shown would be critical in making their ultimate choices.
We found that voters were very engaged with the process and able to identify the messages of the various parties.
Voters, we also found, had largely made up their minds with less than a fortnight to the election when the survey ended.
The election, we believe, will be very close and in the end, might turn on which party is able to get their voters to the ballot box to secure the mandate.
