Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper, Kwesi Pratt has predicted the results of this year’s November 7 polls, claiming the election figures will surprise people in the country.
Contributing to Peace FM’s Kokrokoo, Mr. Pratt assured Ghanaians that the “mouth-mouth” that some political parties and politicians are doing will stop after the election.
When host Kwami Sefa Kayi sought to find out the basis of Mr. Pratt’s assertions, the latter noted that he is “very good at election prediction. I trust myself.”http://ghanapoliticsonline.com
“The impending elections, by whatever means, the figures will surprise many people…The “mouth-mouth” will stop,” he continued.
Predicting results prior to elections has over the years become a normal and acceptable trend. Ben Ephson, a pollster, predicted the 2008 election results and previous elections.
Pollsters are also usually analytical about the chances of candidates elected by their parties to contest the Presidential and Parliamentary elections in the country.
But to Kwesi Pratt, his prediction “is not like that of those people. It’s not like the promises. Mine is based on science. I’m a little bit good.”
He stated emphatically that “everyone will see his smoothness level by November 7
“…That one, I can assure you…I’m very good at election prediction,” he said.
