The newly-elected General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Justin Frimpong Kodua, says an analysis of the margin by which the NPP and the NDC have both won and lost elections is an indication that Ghanaians are generally more tilted towards the NPP.

He said while the NPP tends to win elections with large margins and lose same with very slim margins, the opposite is true for the National Democratic Congress.

“Since 2000, anytime NPP loses elections, the margins are very close, but when NPP wins elections, the margins are always higher.

For instance in 2000 when President Kufuor was winning the second round, he had 56.9%; in 2008 when NDC was winning the elections, they had 50.23%; even in 2012 when the NDC won the elections, they won with 50.7%; in 2016 when NPP was winning the elections, we won with 53.72%; in 2020 when we won the election we won with 51.30%.

“The reason for this analysis is that when we are winning elections the margins are very high; NDC struggles to win elections in Ghana, at least from 2000 coming to 2020. So naturally it tells you that Ghanaians are a bit or more tilted towards the NPP because it’s difficult for the NPP to lose elections,” he said on JoyNews’ PM Express.

According to him, this analysis is very significant now as the new crop of leaders of the NPP begin strategizing to win the upcoming 2024 elections.

He admitted that while the task may be a herculean one, he and his colleagues are resolved to work effectively with the government to bring hope to Ghanaians before the 2024 elections.

“On the backdrop of that, what we need to do from now to 2024 is to make sure that we give Ghanaians hope for them to understand the situation that we find ourselves in,” he said.
