Ghana's biggest opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has failed in two successive attempts to wrestle power from the Akufo-Addo led New Patriotic Party (NPP) government. In all cases, they were led by the former president John Dramani Mahama.
But they are very determined to unseat the NPP in the 2024 elections. The fact is that the party has a brighter chance of securing power in 2024, as the ruling NPP would have spent eight years already in government. The NPP will therefore have to come with a new presidential candidate for the 2024 elections, and this will be an advantage to the NDC.
But the NDC party's chances may be affected by some factors. This includes the possibility of internal party wranglings in their next congress. Indeed, many people are expected to contest in the party's next presidential primaries against the former president John Dramani Mahama. This contest would be a very tough one, from the look of things.
It is also expected that many missiles would be fired against the former president because of his past activities as a president and also flagbearer. If this is not properly manager by the party, it can badly affect their chances of winning power in 2024. What do you think about this?
