All is set for the debate among independent minority aspirants ahead of the general elections in December.

JoyNews in collaboration with IMANI Centre for Policy and Education put together an event dubbed “Minority Political Parties and Independent Candidates Election Debate.”

The event which is scheduled to take place at the Univerity of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) at 8 pm on Thursday is expected to peruse the policies and commitment of candidates outside remits of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the biggest opposition party the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

The six aspirants will be assessed on the articulation of their ideas, projections of their competence, and the ability to tailor their vision to suit the development agenda of the country if given the mandate in the upcoming polls.

The six aspirants are Marricke Kofi Gane, Kofi Koranteng, Samuel Ofori Ampofo, Carl Ebo Morgan, Dr Tom Asiseh and Onipayede Osson Teye.

The programme will be moderated by Head of JoyNews’ Political Desk, Evans Mensah and anchor Emefa Apawu as the aspirants make a case as to why they should be considered as the better alternative.
