No Alliance Can Win The 2024 Elections – Pollster Ben Ephson

The independent presidential hopeful Alan Kyerematen on Thursday, April 4, 2024, announced that he has concluded talks with some political entities and individuals to establish a grand alliance for the 2024 general elections.

To assure himself of the keys to the Jubilee House after the 2024 elections, independent presidential candidate and leader of the Movement for Change, Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen, has entered into a strategic partnership with the National Interest Movement, led by former Convention People’s Party (CPP) flagbearer, Abu Sakara.

But Pollster Ben Ephson believes that Alan’s presidential dream is unattainable since it will be extremely difficult for any alliance to emerge as the winner of any election in Ghana

On radio on April 5, 2024, Ben Ephson, who is also the Managing Editor of the Dispatch Newspaper explained that an alliance of three or more independent candidates could force the upcoming elections to a run-off but not win the elections.

“I think that it is going to be kind of difficult. If my memory serves me right, apart from the NDC and NPP, only one other candidate (independent or from a smaller party) has gotten beyond 1% that was Goosie Tanoh of the National Reformed Party (NRP). The nearest person to get to 1% was Paa Kwesi Nduom who got 0.99%. So it tells you that maybe someone will attend a small party rally but will spoil his vote by voting for NDC or NPP,” he said, recalling the history.
