The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Atta Mills Institute, Koku Anyidoho has said Ghanaians are tired with politicians adding that there’s the need to re-tool the political agenda.
‘Anything short of this will lead Ghanaians nowhere,’ he told Kwame Tutu on Accra based Kingdom FM’s Anopa Nkommo in a reaction to an Afrobarometer report by the Center for Democratic Development (CDD) that said 42% of Ghanaians are indecisive ahead of 2020 elections.
It indicated that four out of 10 Ghanaians are unsure of voting for any political party in the 2020 elections.
The report also showed that the percentage is the highest so far since 2008 after increasing by six points in the last two years.
42% of respondents who were asked if they will exercise their franchise if elections were to be held ‘tomorrow’, said they would not vote.
However, the majority of those who responded in the affirmative declared support for the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) over the National Democratic Congress (NDC) although the former’s preference shrunk by 15 points.
“Compared to 2017, the proportion of respondents who said they would vote for the NPP has dwindled by 15 percentage points from 49% to 34% while the share who said they would vote for the NDC has remained unchanged 22%.”
In its conclusion, the survey categorically pointed out that, “it is impossible to draw solid conclusions about a likely election outcome.
According to the former Deputy General Secretary of the NDC, 42% of Ghanaians being indecisive ahead of the 2020 election is a huge percentage which explains that Ghanaians are fed-up with politicians.
