NDC to have an Asante Man as Running Mate for the first time in Ghana’s Fourth Republic



In recent times, the Ashanti Region has emerged as a focal point of heightened interest within the National Democratic Congress (NDC), with constituents passionately urging H.E. John Dramani Mahama to consider selecting a running mate from this key region. The loud call resonates with the belief that such a strategic move could significantly impact the NDC’s electoral standing.

A prevailing perspective among constituents underscores the regional dynamics at play. With Vice President Dr. Bawumia, a northerner, posing a competitive challenge in the NDC’s stronghold, the party appears to be strategically aligning itself to amass crucial votes in the Ashanti Region. The rationale is clear: by having a running mate from the Ashanti Region, the NDC aims to secure a substantial portion of the votes in this influential area.

The NDC’s goal is ambitious but calculated – the party believes that by garnering just 30% of the votes in the Ashanti Region, it could significantly bolster its overall electoral prospects. This strategic maneuver is rooted in the understanding that regional representation can sway voter sentiments, and by addressing this gap, the NDC hopes to tip the scales in its favor.

As the call for an Ashanti running mate gains momentum, the question on everyone’s mind is: Who is likely to be nominated from the region? While Dr. Kwabena Duffour has been a prominent name tipped by many, other potential candidates have surfaced, adding an air of anticipation to the decision-making process.

Among the speculated contenders, Kwame Awua Darko and Dr. Samuel Sarpong have been mentioned by constituents and political observers alike. Each brings a unique set of experiences and qualifications to the table, making the decision more complex for H.E John Dramani Mahama. The final selection will not only carry the weight of regional representation but will also play a crucial role in shaping the NDC’s electoral narrative.

In the coming weeks, all eyes will be on the NDC as the party navigates the decision-making process for its running mate. The choice made will undoubtedly influence the dynamics of the upcoming elections, and as constituents rally behind the call for an Ashanti running mate, the political landscape in the region is poised for an intriguing transformation.
