PNC Dr Edward Mahama Will Push Election To Round Two
Flagbearer of the People’s National Convention (PNC) Dr Edward Nasigre Mahama says he will make sure the 2016 presidential elections go into a second round.
He says Ghana’s peace stands at risk if the polls do not go into a run-off.
Speaking to TV3’s Jonathan Adams in an exclusive interview on Friday, Dr Mahama says forcing the elections into a run-off has been his campaign strategy.
“My campaign strategy is what will give Ghana peace,” he said, “and I am going to make sure we have a run-off.”
He explained that: “A run-off will prepare NPP, NDC and whoever else for a loss or win because it is my conceded opinion that a so-called one-touch is not good for the country.”
The four-time presidential candidate expressed hope of being one of the two candidates into the run-off, which he promises to win.
“I will form what I call a minority-led government,” he stated his future plans.
