Former Chief Executive Officer for the Public Sector Reforms Kusi Boafo has indicated that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has become a formidable opposition party over the past few years.
According to him, but for the Ashanti region’s dominance of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) the party would have lost the 2016 and 2020 elections because the available data points to the fact that the NPP lost in the other regions.
He said “In 2016, we had 10 regions and we had to overwork in Ashanti region in order to beat the National Democratic Congress. I informed the party of this when I was the Research chairman. The NDC beat us in the other 9 regions with 113,000 votes”.
kusi Boafo said in 2020 there was a similar trend as the NDC beat the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the other 15 regions across the country. He said the NDC beat NPP by 625,000 in the other regions and but for the massive votes in the Ashanti region, the NPP would have lost.
He noted that the National Democratic Congress has become a formidable political party in opposition and should be a worry to the NPP because it’s possible that the NDC can beat the NPP by one million votes.
