Pollster Ben Ephson has indicated that the opposition NDC would need over 30 per cent of the votes in the Ashanti region to win the December 7 polls.
“For the NDC to have its hope of winning, if they get 30 per cent plus in Ashanti, they would have gone a long way in winning. So, I’m sure the Ashanti Region will be a huge battleground. If the NDC gets more than 30 per cent in Ashanti, it would have gone a long way,” he told Morning Starr sit-in host Lantam Papanko Wednesday.
He stressed: “the three Northern regions will be a big battleground because there has been an increase of 155,000 in the three Northern regions plus the new ones and that is hitherto like an NDC stronghold, I’m sure the NPP would want to break into that”.
“I think that the battle actually is those who will take Central, and given the numbers now, Greater Accra and to some extent Western. The party which wins these three regions will win 2020 parliamentary and presidential elections.”
