The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) has said that it expects the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to win the 2024 presidential election.
According to the EIU, although the party’s 2020 candidate has not categorically indicated that he will contest the 2024 election, it is looking forward to the NDC filing a fresh flagbearer to enhance the party’s chances.
“The next parliamentary and presidential elections are due in 2024. Under the constitutionally mandated term limits, Mr. Akufo-Addo cannot run for a third term. Mr. Mahama is reportedly considering whether to run again, but we expect the NDC to seek to revitalise its prospects with a fresh candidate. After two terms of NPP government, we expect the NDC to win the 2024 presidential election and to gain a small majority in parliament,” the EIU said in a recent report.
The EIU acknowledged the difficulty the Akufo-Addo-led government might face in terms of implementing some of its policies that require parliamentary approval due to the balanced nature of the house.
