The National Democratic Congress (NDC), the largest opposition political party, is expected to win the 2024 presidential elections, according to a prediction made by Fitch Solutions, the research division of the worldwide rating firm Fitch Ratings.
The majority of Ghanaians, according to a poll performed by Fitch, will support the NDC in the elections of 2024.
Before the Christmas break, Mike Kruiniger, a senior national risk analyst at Fitch Solutions in charge of sub-Saharan Africa, revealed the survey’s results. He predicted that Ghanaians will support the NDC due to the nation’s dire economic situation.
According to Mike Kruiniger, the nation’s financial difficulties would worsen in 2023 under the leadership of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-New Addo’s Patriotic Party (NPP).
“If we look slightly into the future… the general election in 2024, we believe that at this point the opposition NDC is most likely to win.
“Public faith in the government is at an all-time low right now, and problems next year will probably lead to an increase in anti-government attitudes.
According to recent surveys, “the vast majority of respondents (Ghanaians) chose the opposition NDC when asked whom they will trust with the economy, influencing our conclusion that a government change is probable in 2025 following the 2024 elections,” he stated.
The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is expected to win the general elections in 2024, according to the Economist Intelligence Unit (ElU), but the party has to revitalize its leadership to improve its chances.
The EIU said in a research that the NDC has a better chance of winning the elections in 2024.
The New Democratic Party under Mr. Mahama’s leadership won the elections in 2012, but Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party won the two elections that followed in 2016 and 2020.
The opposition party has a better likelihood of winning the upcoming general elections, per the EIU’s five-year prediction for Ghana, which was published on Wednesday, April 13, 2022.
The research and analysis branch of the Economist Group, known as The Economist Intelligence Unit, offers forecasting and advising services through research and analysis, including monthly nation reports, five-year economic predictions, assessments on country risk, and industry reports.
The ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has praised the Economist Intelligence Unit(EIU) for what it calls a positive review of Ghana’s government.
