The popularly known Ghanaian Ghanaian pollster and managing editor of the Dispatch newspaper, Ben Ephson has recently sparked massive stir, debates and arguments across all social media platforms after sending another strong message to the largest opposition party, NDC over Assin North Court ruling.

The outcome of the just ended Assin North court ruling saw the Assin North MP loosing his case at the Cape Coast High Court after the presiding Judge, Justice Kwasi Boakye requested for a fresh parliamentary elections to be conducted after annulling the outcome of the 2020 parliamentary elections at the constituency.

This implies that, the incumbent party, NPP currently have the majority in parliament with the largest opposition party, NDC being the minority in parliament.

With respect to this, the popularly known pollster, Ben Ephson took the privilege to share his immense opinions and thoughts on the effect of the outcome of the Assin North court ruling on the way forward for NDC at the constituency.

Speaking on the most anticipated show on 3Fm, Ben Ephson made it clear whilst sending another strong message to the NDC that, the party might not like the outcome of the re-elections if their appeal to court is unfortunately thrown out.

He highlighted that, considering the 2016 and the just ended 2020 election outcomes for the parliamentary polls at the Assin North constituency, the largest opposition party, NDC might lose the re-election.

According to him, the electoral statistics favor the incumbent party, NPP going into the re-election considering the number of votes they won in the just ended 2020 parliamentary elections.

“This seat is more of an NPP dear than NDC. In 2020, there was a split in terms of the NPP in this constituency. In 2016, the NPP won the seat with 15553 votes and NDC 10751, margin of victory for NPP was 4802 votes”, Ben Ephson emphatically stated.

“In 2020, NPP had 14,793, NDC had 17,493 and margin of victory for NDC was 2733. In the run up of the 2020 elections there was a split in the front of the NPP. When the margin is not huge in such by-elections the incumbent government always wins so yes he may go for appeal, if the appeal is thrown out, it is going to be fresh elections and likely NDC might lose”, Ben Ephson emphatically added.
