In the NPP primaries, Hon. Kennedy Ohene Agyapong is gaining popularity, but not enough to surpass Hon Alan Kwadwo Kyeremanten and H.E. Mahamudu Bawumia in the race to lead the NPP in the 2024 elections.
For the NDC race, H.E. John Dramani Mahama is expected to secure his party’s nomination as he leads his closest rivals, Dr. Kwabena Duffuor and Hon Kojo Bonsu, by a significant margin.
In the general elections, JDM leads all the NPP frontrunners, including AKK and DMB, while KOA is currently very competitive against JDM.
