The opinion polls are out, and all signs point to a decisive victory for the NDC – Asiedu Nketiah

Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, the National Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), has stated that the NDC would win if national elections were held today.

He claims that, while the party is assured of victory, its primary goal is to ensure a smooth and transparent voting process.

In an interview with JoyNews on Thursday, May 23, he stated, “Our message was warmly received. Both parties have got an opportunity.

“The opinion polls are out, and all signs point to a decisive victory for the NDC. However, as a Russian president once said, ‘Those who vote decide nothing; those who count the votes decide everything.’

“Therefore, our attention is on those who will count the votes and those who will ensure security, so the elections can proceed smoothly. That’s our priority.”

Nketiah stated that several reliable polls, not just local ones, support the NDC’s expected victory.

“Our confidence is derived from this. We are expected to win 52% of the vote this month. With free and fair elections, we anticipate a 52% victory, which is a decisive victory.”

The NDC National Chairman encouraged the Electoral Commission (EC) to resolve concerns over the missing Biometric Verification Readers.

He argued that the EC’s transparency and reaction to these complaints will resolve outstanding issues and increase trust in the electoral system.

“They are fully capable of meeting these demands without complication.” Their reluctance to be forthcoming is disturbing and will remain so.

“I believe that transparency would have resolved these issues long ago if there was nothing to conceal,”

“I believe that transparency would have resolved these issues long ago if there was nothing to conceal,” Nketiah concluded.
