The count down has drawn nearer as we are barely left with a day to this year’s presidential and parliamentary elections scheduled for Monday, December 7th.
Despite the fact that, The Electoral Commission(EC) came out to announced that, 12 out of the 17 candidates nominations qualified to contest on the presidential ballot of the upcoming 2020 general elections, Ghanaian are mainly concentrating on the two main political parties in Ghana — The New Patriotic Party and the National Democratic Congress.
The NPP and The NDC as we speak are working hard to come out victory on December 7th as Campaign across the country is ongoing.
However, it could be recalled that, back in 1992, Jerry John Rawlings, the founder of the NDC and the first president of the fourth Republic of Ghana emerged as the president-elect in the election with an overwhelming victory polling 58.4% while Albert Adu Boahen of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) polled 30.3%
Other candidates were Hilla Limann, People’s National Convention (PNC); Kwabena Darko, National Independence Party (NIP); and Emmanuel Erskine, People’s Heritage Party (PHP) polled 11.3%
This was Ghana’s return to civilian rule after the country had been under a military rule for 11years under JJ Rawlings.
However, the question here is, Will history repeat itself come December 7th following how this year’s elections is as tough as that of 1992’s? let me know what you think by leaving a comment at the comment section below
